Monte Carlo calculations of positron implantation profiles and backscattering probabilities in gold
MetadataShow full item record
The transport of charged particles through matter is worth considering for various applications. In this work, backscattering probabilities and mean penetration depths were calculated from the implantation profiles for positrons of energies 1-75 keV entering normally at various angles into a semi-infinite gold target. The theoretical results of backscattering probability and mean penetration depth are compared with other published [1, 3, 4, 10, 11, 13]. Monte Carlo calculations and experimental results for the semi-infinite gold target. In general, good agreement is observed.
