1. NAME AND TITLE
ERPEX: Monte Carlo Distributions of Energetic Proton Ranges in Silicon.
ERPEX represents an extension of CCC-228/SPAR for the silicon study.
University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
FORTRAN IV; CDC CYBER 73-16.
4. NATURE OF PROBLEM SOLVED
The projected range distributions of energetic protons non-channelled in silicon, and relative to
radiation damage, are treated. Protons in the range of 0.5 to 2.5 MeV are simulated.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
Monte Carlo simulation is used using the computational methods of Berger, and the following assumptions are involved:
1. The total pathlength traversed by the particle in the solid is given before the history of the particle is terminated.
2. The solid has a random or amorphous structure.
3. Multiple-scattering polar deflections are calculated by a simple analytical compression.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME
No study has been made by RSIC of typical running time for ERPEX.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
ERPEX was designed for the CDC CYBER 73-16 computer.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
A FORTRAN IV compiler is required.
