  title={Characteristics of energy deposition by pions},
  author={Richard Hutson and Tony W. Armstrong},
Theoretical calculations of pion energy deposition in tissue were performed at ORNL at the request of LAMPF personnel. Some representative results of these calculations and the results of additional analysis based on the ORNL calculations are presented. Several points on the calculated depth dose curve of a monoenergetic pion beam were selected. At each point the total energy deposited by each particle, the amount of energy deposited as a function of energy for each particle, the LET… CONTINUE READING
