Dr Matthew Murdoch is a Physicist at Buhler AG providing dosimetry and radiation expertise for the LEEB product line. He has 10 years of experience in radiation measurement and Monte Carlo simulations in both academia and industry. Since joining Buhler he has created simulations for both product dosimetry and radiation safety as well as designing dosimetry trials for process control.
Monte Carlo simulations for low energy electron beam
Monte Carlo radiation simulations are commonly used in high energy electron beam processing to estimate doses where they cannot be reliably measured. The use of these simulations range from product dosimetry to radiation safety. While high-energy electrons have ranges of order a few centimetres, low-energy electrons have ranges of a few hundred microns in water. At this short length scale additional details in the simulation model become important and must be balanced against hardware and software limitations. This talk will discuss some of these details and limitations. Results from low-energy electron beam simulations will be presented.
