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 ranges from product dosimetry to radiation safety. While high-energy electrons have ranges of the order of 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.
