*Technical Report by Xiaodong Hong and Thomas P. Armstrong, May 10, 1997 *

The purpose of this report is to compute the energy dependent geometric factors of the E and F detectors of Cassini/MIMI/LEMMS. Included with this report are a geometric simulation of the LEMMS subsystem, simulations of the magnetic field produced by a pair of tilted magnets, and the computation of the reversed electron trajectories which can be used for the calculation of the geometric factors for each detector.
