Microdosimetric comparisions of volumes of silicon and gallium arsenide exposed to protons of 25 to 300 MeV have been performed using a computer simulation. Significant differences between silicon and gallium arsenide are seen in the energy-deposition spectra. The effect of the surrounding material, the energy and mass spectra of the recoiling nuclei, and the effect of scaling are also presented and discussed.
