Neutron ray-trace simulation application

McStas lets you model very precisely a neutron instrument described as a series of various components. A source component shoots each neutron randomly (Monte-Carlo), and the particle is then propagated through the different instrument components. These later act on the neutron characteristics (position, speed, direction, spin, etc.). Usually, one installs some detectors along the neutron path to monitor its characteristics and flux.
