On the Monte Carlo simulation of electron transport in the sub-1 keV energy range.

PURPOSE The validity of "classic" Monte Carlo (MC) simulations of electron and positron transport at sub-1 keV energies is investigated in the context of quantum theory. METHODS Quantum theory dictates that uncertainties on the position and energy-momentum four-vectors of radiation quanta obey Heisenberg's uncertainty relation; however, these… CONTINUE READING
