Calculation of the Effective Stopping Power of Ions Generated by Neutrons in Tissue Constituents
Saion, Elias and Watt, D. E. (1992) Calculation of the Effective Stopping Power of Ions Generated by Neutrons in Tissue Constituents. Pertanika, 15 (1). pp. 55-59.
This paper reports the calculation of stopping powers of heavy charged particles generated by neutrons in four-element tissue constituents for particle energies from 0.1 keY to 1.0 MeV. At low projectile energies of less than 30 keV/amu where the nuclear stopping phenomenon is more dominant than the electronic stopping phenomenon, the effective stopping power values are higher than the continuous slowing-down approximation (CSDA) values, from which the deviation is dependent upon the target mass and the energy and mass of the projectiles.
