Abstract:

Kerma-to-fluence ratios have been calculated for neutrons with energies between 20 and 60 MeV incident upon 1H, 12C, 14N, and 16O. The following charged particles have been taken into account protons, deuterons, alpha particles, and heavy recoils. Results are presented for NE-213 plastic, muscle, and tissue-equivalent plastic.
