Sanz, A G; Fuss, M C; Roldan, A M; Oller, J C; Blanco, Francisco; Limao-Vieira, P; Brunger, Michael J; Buckman, Stephen; Garcia, Gustavo


In order to incorporate the effect of low energy electrons and positron in radiation damage models, the simulation method proposed here is based on experimental and theoretical cross section data and energy loss spectra we have previously derived. After a summary of the main techniques used to obtain reliable input data, the basis of a Low Energy Particle Track Simulation (LEPTS) procedure is established. Single electron and positron tracks in liquid water are presented and the possibility of...[Show more]
