Summary, in English

A Geant4-based Python/C++ simulation and coding framework, which has been developed and used in order to aid the R&D efforts for thermal neutron detectors at neutron scattering facilities, is described. Built upon configurable geometry and generator modules, it integrates a general purpose object oriented output file format with meta-data, developed to facilitate a faster turn-around time when setting up and analysing simulations. Also discussed are the extensions to Geant4 which have been implemented in order to include the effects of low-energy phenomena such as Bragg diffraction in the polycrystalline support materials of the neutron detectors. Finally, an example application of the framework is briefly shown.
