Ion Range Benchmark

Application ID: 29741

The Ion Range Benchmark model simulates the passage of energetic protons through silicon with both ionization losses and nuclear scattering. The initial energy of the protons is varied using a parametric sweep from 1 keV to 100 MeV.

The average path length of the protons is compared to published values of the ion range under the continuous slowing down approximation (CSDA) as well as the projected range in the initial direction of motion. Simulated and experimental data agree well.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
