Abstract:

The problem of determining the energy deposition profile in a material irradiated by a beam of energetic electrons is apparently insoluble by direct analytic methods. The computer code ZEBRA1 described in this report attempts the numerical solution of this problem by using Monte Carlo techniques to combine the Goudsmit-Sanderson multiple-scattering theory and the continuous-slowing-down energy-loss theory. The unique feature making this particular code useful is its ability to solve problems for a stack of material slabs rather than a single slab. Author
