Proton-impact ionization cross sections for nanodosimetric track structure simulations

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Monte Carlo simulations of the particle track structure require accurate ion- and electron-impact cross-section data of the

    medium. These data are scarce and often inconsistent when measured by different groups. In this work, literature data on ionisation

    cross sections (CSs) of nitrogen and propane for protons with energies 0.1–10 MeV are reviewed and implemented in

    the code PTra. Methane data were used to obtain proton-impact CSs of propane due to their absence in the literature. PTra is

    benchmarked by comparing simulated particle-track parameters to experimental results, measured with an ion-counting

    nanodosemeter.
