Many nuclear decays lead to the emission of multiple gamma-rays or X-rays in close temporal coincidence. Nuclear polarization effects lead to angular correlations between these successive gamma-ray emissions that depend on the spins of the states involved and the multipolarities of the transitions in question. To accurately simulate the transport and detection of such coincident gamma decays, these polarization effects should be taken into account. However, most standard Monte Carlo codes...[Show more]
