Differential cross-sections measurements for hadrontherapy: 50 MeV/A 12 C reactions on H, C, O, Al and nat Ti targets
In order to keep the benefits of a carbon treatment, the dose and biological effects induced by secondary fragments must be taken into account when simulating the treatment plan. These Monte-Carlo
Zero degree measurements of 12C fragmentation at 95 MeV/nucleon on thin targets
The fragmentation cross section at zero degree for a 95 MeV/nucleon carbon beam on thin targets is measured to validate the nuclear interaction models using experimental double differential cross sections which are still very scarce.
Double di ffential fragmentation cross sections measurements of 95 MeV/u 12C on thin targets for hadrontherapy
During therapeutic treatment with heavy ions like carbon, the beam undergoes nuclear fragmentation and secondary light charged particles, in particular protons and alpha particles, are produced. To
Benchmarking geant4 nuclear models for hadron therapy with 95 MeV/nucleon carbon ions
In carbon therapy, the interaction of the incoming beam with human tissue may lead to the production of a large amount of nuclear fragments and secondary light particles. An accurate estimation of
Measurement of 12C Fragmentation Cross Sections on C, O, and H in the Energy Range of Interest for Particle Therapy Applications
In a carbon ion treatment the nuclear fragmentation of both target and beam projectiles impacts on the dose released on the tumor and on the surrounding healthy tissues. Carbon ion fragmentation
Simulation study on light ions identification methods for carbon beams from 95 to 400 MeV/A
Monte Carlo simulations have been performed in order to evaluate the efficiencies of several light ions identification techniques. The detection system was composed with layers of scintillating

Production of Energetic Light Fragments in Spallation Reactions
Different reaction mechanisms contribute to the production of light fragments (LF) from nuclear reactions. Available models cannot accurately predict emission of LF from arbitrary reactions. However,
Timing performances of a Time-Of-Flight detection system for the FRACAS large acceptance mass spectrometer
The FRAgmentation of CArbon and cross Sections large acceptance mass spectrometer will be used to measure the double differential fragmentation cross sections of a $^{12}$C beam in the context of


Secondary beam fragments produced by 200 MeV u−1 12C ions in water and their dose contributions in carbon ion radiotherapy
For applications in heavy-ion radiotherapy, the emission of secondary fragments from 200 MeV u−1 carbon ions was investigated using a 12.78 cm thick water absorber as a tissue-equivalent beam
Influence of fragment reaction of relativistic heavy charged particles on heavy-ion radiotherapy.
This investigation of the fragments' fluence and linear energy transfer (LET) spectra produced from various incident ions using an experimental approach to reveal these physical qualities of the beams revealed that the number of light fragments, such as hydrogen and helium, became larger than thenumber of primaries in the vicinity of the range end.
Nuclear fragmentation of high-energy heavy-ion beams in water.
Fast neutrons produced by nuclear fragmentation in treatment irradiations with 12C beam.
In the framework of the heavy-ion tumour therapy project at GSI, nuclear fragmentation of 200 AMeV carbon ions stopping in a 12.78-cm thick water absorber is investigated and the resulting angular distributions of neutrons and charged particles as well as their yields are similar to those obtained with the water absorbers.
Measurements of total and partial charge-changing cross sections for 200-to 400-MeV/nucleon C-12 on water and polycarbonate
We have studied charged nuclear fragments produced by 200- to 400-MeV/nucleon carbon ions, interacting with water and polycarbonate, using a newly developed emulsion detector. Total and partial
Spatial fragment distribution from a therapeutic pencil-like carbon beam in water.
The results revealed that the observed deflection of fragment particles exceeded the multiple scattering effect estimated by Molière's theory, but the difference can be sufficiently accounted for by considering one term involved in the multiple-scattering formula.
