Wall effects observed in tissue-equivalent proportional counters from 1.05 GeV/nucleon iron-56 particles.


Tissue-equivalent proportional counters (TEPCs) have been used to measure energy deposition in simulated volumes of tissue ranging in diameter from 0.1 to 10 microm. There has been some concern that the wall used to define the volume of interest could influence energy deposition within the sensitive volume because it has a density significantly greater than… (More)
