Progress of Geant4 electromagnetic physics developments and applications

Abstract : We report on developments of the Geant4 electromagnetic physics sub-libraries of Geant4 release 10.4 and beyond. Modifications are introduced to the models of photoelectric effect, bremsstrahlung, gamma conversion, single and multiple scattering. The theory-based Goudsmit-Saunderson model of electron/positron multiple scattering has been recently reviewed and a new improved version, providing the most accurate results for scattering of electrons and positrons, was made available. The updated interfaces, models and configurations have already been integrated into LHC applications and may be useful for any type of simulations
