Monte Carlo simulation of low energy electrons and positrons in liquid water
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
An advanced simulation code, LEEPS (Low Energy Electron Positron Simulation), has been adapted to simulation of electrons and positrons in liquid water for energies down to 50 eV. Different scattering parameters and results from simulations are compared with existing data in the literature.
Several programs including a subroutine package for simulation of secondary electrons created in binary like collisions have been developed in purpose of charting different characteristics of the energy deposition.
A toy model for DNA damage is presented as an example of how LEEPS possibly can be used for future investigation of cellular damage due to radiation.
