Abstract.

The Monte-Carlo code MOCADI has been extended, besides to fission and fragmentation reactions, also to fusion-evaporation reactions. The updated version includes the cross sections and the reaction kinematics for the production of evaporation residues calculated according to the statistical model code PACE2, while the atomic interaction with matter can be treated either with the code ATIMA or with the code TRIM. The present version of MOCADI can now be employed world-wide for design studies of new low-energy nuclear physics facilities and for the optimization of experiments involving fusion-evaporation reactions, e.g. mass measurements, laser spectroscopy, super-heavy synthesis.
