LaRT (Lyman-alpha Radiative Transfer)
LaRT is a cell-based, 3D Monte-Carlo RT code for the Lyɑ radiation.
The code is written in modern fortran and has been developed to study Lyɑ RT and the Wouthuysen-Field effect. LaRT can also calculate polarization by completely considering the fine-structure of neutral hydrogen without arbitrarily dividing core and wing regimes.
A keynote presented in Vietnam is available for download (click here).
LaRT is publicly available via https://github.com/seoncafe/LaRT and
The movie demonstrates the result obtained with LaRT. Lyɑ RT was performed for a cubic shape medium viewed at the (1, 1, 1)-direction. The left plot shows the spectrum, the middle and right panels show a variation of the intensity and polarization pattern, respectively, as frequency x varies. (Click to play the movie.)
