The role of data libraries as a collaborative tool across Monte Carlo codes is discussed. Some new contributions in this domain are presented; they concern a data library of proton and alpha ionization cross sections, the development in progress of a data library of electron ionization cross sections and proposed improvements to the EADL (Evaluated Atomic Data Library), the latter resulting from an extensive data validation process.

Experimental L-Shell X-Ray Production and Ionization Cross Sections for Proton Impact

Abstract Experimental values of proton-induced L -shell x-ray production and ionization cross sections are tabulated. Data for individual L x-ray transitions and L -subshell ionization are presented

Tables and graphs of electron-interaction cross sections from 10 eV to 100 GeV derived from the LLNL Evaluated Electron Data Library (EEDL), Z = 1--100

Energy-dependent evaluated electron interaction cross sections and related parameters are presented for elements H through Fm (Z = 1 to 100). Data are given over the energy range from 10 eV to 100

Fitted empirical reference cross sections for K-shell ionization by protons

Energy-loss effect in inner-shell Coulomb ionization by heavy charged particles

The influence of the energy loss of slow projectiles during inelastic collisions on the inner-shell ionization cross sections is treated analytically. The result agrees with available experimental

Fitted Empirical Reference Cross Sections for K-Shell Ionization by Alpha Particles

On the basis of our collection of experimental x-ray and Auger production cross-section data for H and He ions, we present a table of best-fitted cross sections for K-shell vacancy production (direct

Geant4 developments and applications

Geant4 is a software toolkit for the simulation of the passage of particles through matter. It is used by a large number of experiments and projects in a variety of application domains, including
