Abstract:

In this report we describe mathematical analysis, physics research and computer program development for the simulation of charged particle transport in irradiated and non-irradiated solids. The simulation techniques described were used to calculate energy deposition, charge, and current distributions in these solids. The scope of the work included 1 discrete ordinates transport calculations of low energy I eV to 20 eV electrons in silicon dioxide with and without electric fields 2 comparison testing of one- dimensional discrete ordinates transport codes for charged and neutral particles with analytical benchmark calculations 3 Monte Carlo transport calculations for low energy electrons in the presence of strong electric fields in silicon dioxide 4 Monte Carlo transport calculations for high energy MeV electrons in insulating materials with internal electric fields.... Discrete ordinates, Monte Carlo calculations, Electron transport, Benchmark calculations, Charge distributions in insulators, Electron-phonon interactions, Electric fields.
