A collection of functions to simulate luminescence production in dosimetric materials using Monte Carlo methods. Implemented are models for delocalised transitions (e.g., Chen and McKeever (1997) <doi:10.1142/2781>), localised transitions (e.g., Pagonis et al. (2019) <doi:10.1016/j.jlumin.2018.11.024>) and tunnelling transitions (Jain et al. (2012) <doi:10.1088/0953-8984/24/38/385402> and Pagonis et al. (2019) <doi:10.1016/j.jlumin.2018.11.024>). Supported stimulation methods are thermal luminescence (TL), continuous-wave optically stimulated luminescence (CW-OSL), linearly-modulated optically stimulated luminescence (LM-OSL), linearly-modulated infrared stimulated luminescence (LM-IRSL), and isothermal luminescence (ITL or ISO-TL).
