Abstract:

This report will describe the development and application of numerical methods for predicting dose and variation in multi-layered structures due to x-rays and gamma rays and the charge build-up in dielectrics due to electron beam irradiation. The scope our work included development and implementation of 1 discrete ordinates electron transport calculations for electron sources both within and incident of solid structures 2 discrete ordinates electron transport calculations for photon sources incident on layered solids 3 Monte Carlo calculations and statistical analysis programs for low- energy electron transport in insulating structures. In addition, several photon transport calculations were made to determine the scattered photon energy spectra characteristic of various standard irradiation test facilities. Keywords Electron transport Coupled electron photon transport Photon transport Charge distributions in insulators.
