NIST 7. NIST Electron and Positron Stopping Powers of Materials

Published

Author(s)

Stephen M. Seltzer

Abstract

This database (also called EPSTAR) provides rapid calculations of stopping powers (collisional, radiative, and total), CSDA ranges, radiation yields and density effect corrections for incident electrons or positrons with kinetic energies from 1 keV to 10 GeV, and for any chemically defined target material.The interactive database allows the user to specify an incident particle, an energy range, the target material and density, and for a gas, temperature and pressure. Clear instructions make the calculations easy to perform. Results can be saved to an external file for future use.
