Abstract:

The Naval Research Laboratory energy deposition code E-DEP-1 has been adapted to calculate lateral ranges. The revised code, which is capable of handling incident energies varying from 1 keV to 50 MeV, retains the convenience and economy of the previous code. The accuracy in the lateral ranges calculated is shown to be of the order of 15 for the case where the mass ratio of incident to target atoms is close to 1 and is much greater when this ratio differs significantly from unity.
