Electron photon calculations using MCNP

  title={Electron photon calculations using MCNP},
  author={David P. Gierga},
MCNP4BTM was released in February 1997 with significant enhancements to electron/photon transport methods. .As part of this thesis, these enhancements have been verified against a wide range of published electron/photon experiments, spanning high energy bremsstrahlung production to electron transmission and reflection. The impact of several MCNP tally options and physics parameters was explored in detail. The agreement between experiment and simulation was usually within two standard deviations… 
Study of bremsstrahlung photons in bulk target using MCNP code
The aim of this research was to study the feasibility of bremsstrahlung photon production in target bombarded by 1 GeV electrons. The calculations were performed by the Monte Carlo code MCNP. Six
Monte Carlo Modeling and Design of Photon Energy Attenuation Layers for >10× Quantum Yield Enhancement in Si-Based Hard X-ray Detectors
High-energy (>20 keV) X-ray photon detection at high quantum yield, high spatial resolution, and short response time has long been an important area of study in physics. Scintillation is a prevalent
The design and optimization of an inertial electrostatic confinement fusion device
In this thesis the modeling, optimization and realization of an inertial electrostatic confinement nuclear fusion device (IEC), the TU/e fusor, is discussed. The aim of this thesis is to construct an


A verification of the Monte Carlo code MCNP for thick target bremsstrahlung calculations.
Timing studies indicate the detector tally will perform the integrated yield calculations to a precision of 1% approximately 10 to 50 times faster than the conventional cell tally for an emission angle of 0 degree, and predicted mean energy is within 7% of the values derived from measurement for all angles tested.
Multidimensional electron-photon transport with standard discrete ordinates codes
A method is described for generating electron cross sections that are comparable with standard discrete ordinates codes without modification. There are many advantages of using an established
A macro Monte Carlo method for electron beam dose calculations
Measurements in the beam of a Philips SL75-20 linear accelerator incident on homogeneous and simple inhomogeneous phantoms are in good agreement with MMC simulations, and the energy, angular and spatial distributions of primary electrons have to be provided.
An Overview of ETRAN Monte Carlo Methods
The ETRAN methods are described as they are currently being implemented in the authors' codes at NBS, which form the basis also of codes written at other laboratories, such as Sandia's older SANDYL code and their more current series of the TIGER, CYLTRAN, and ACCEPT codes.
ITS: the integrated TIGER series of electron/photon transport codes-Version 3.0
The ITS system is a powerful and user-friendly software package permitting state-of-the-art Monte Carlo solution of linear time-independent coupled electron/photon radiation transport problems, with
Forward-directed bremsstrahlung of 10- to 30-MeV electrons incident on thick targets of Al and Pb.
Spectra from thick targets of Al and Pb have been measured absolutely along the beam axis for electrons of 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30-MeV incident energy and the shapes of the measured and calculated spectra were in excellent agreement.
The response history Monte Carlo method for electron transport
In this paper, a new method, response history Monte Carlo (RHMC), is developed for solving electron transport problems through homogeneous material, and it is more accurate than the conventional
Electron transport in radiotherapy using local-to-global Monte Carlo
Local-to-Global (L-G) Monte Carlo methods are a way to make three-dimensional electron transport both fast and accurate relative to other Monte Carlo methods. This is achieved by breaking the
EGS4 code system
This report introduces a new, enhanced version of EGS4, a general purpose package for the Monte Carlo simulation of the coupled transport of electrons and photons in an arbitrary geometry for particles with energies above a few keV up to several TeV.
