Some analysis techniques and results of the Monte-Carlo simulation of proton and electron tracks

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In response to the need for detailed data on energy deposition in micron and sub-micron sites, the code PROTON has been developed to transport protons and electrons on an event-by-event basis in water vapor. The electrons are currently transported down to sub-electron-volt energies, making the results a suitable starting point for radiation chemistry studies. This report describes the details of some techniques we use to analyze the large amount of data produced by the code. In particular, we shall be concerned here with lineal energy distributions (lineal energy, y, is the energy deposited in a specified volume by a passing ... continued below

In response to the need for detailed data on energy deposition in micron and sub-micron sites, the code PROTON has been developed to transport protons and electrons on an event-by-event basis in water vapor. The electrons are currently transported down to sub-electron-volt energies, making the results a suitable starting point for radiation chemistry studies. This report describes the details of some techniques we use to analyze the large amount of data produced by the code. In particular, we shall be concerned here with lineal energy distributions (lineal energy, y, is the energy deposited in a specified volume by a passing particle and its secondaries, divided by the mean path length through that volume). The fact that lineal energy spectra can be measured using microdosimetric techniques offers a useful opportunity for comparing Monte-Carlo-based predictions with experimental data.
