Monte Carlo calculations of track structures

Description

In the study of radiation effects in matter, a knowledge of the spatial distribution of secondary products and of energy deposited is important. For charged particles heavier than electrons, energy is deposited along an almost straight track which can be seen in photographic emulsions or cloud chambers. The initial effect of the energy deposition is the production of clouds of collectively excited electrons (``plasmons``), ions and secondary electrons (``delta rays`` which in turn produce plasmons etc.) We describe the spatial pattern of energy deposited and new species produced as the track structure. The discussion presented here is only concerned with ... continued below

The discussion presented here is only concerned with the initial track structure; the subsequent fate of the products is discussed in other papers of this conference. 6 refs., 2 figs.
