We are developing an experiment to measure the two and three-body (γ, p) differential cross sections (DCS) for 3H and 3He. These data will be used to determine the 1S0 nn scattering length (ann) and np scattering length (anp) respectively. This paper describes features of the Monte-Carlo (MC) simulation that will aid in the optimization of the experimental design and the data analysis approach.
