Request PDF | Monte Carlo Transport of Electrons and Photons | Much of the material to be covered in this chapter has been discussed in earlier chapters on ETRAN, EGS and the ITS systems. This. The Monte Carlo method for electron transport is a semiclassical Monte Carlo(MC) approach of modeling semiconductor transport. Assuming the carrier motion consists of free flights interrupted by scattering mechanisms, a computer is utilized to simulate the trajectories of particles as they move across the device under the influence of an electric field using classical mechanics. EGS4 (Electron-Gamma Shower) is a general purpose Monte Carlo simulation of the coupled transport of electrons and photons in an arbitrary geometry for particles with energies above a few keV up to several TeV. The radiation transport of electrons or photons can be simulated in any element, compound, or mixture.

In this chapter we discuss the Monte Carlo simulation of the transport of electrons and photons through bulk media in the energy range 10 keV to 50 MeV. The Monte Carlo technique consists of using knowledge of the probability distributions governing the individual interactions of electrons. A series of Monte Carlo codes for the calculation of the transport of electrons and photons through extended media has been developed at the National Bureau of Standards over the past 25 years. These codes have been named ETRAN (for Electron TRANsport), with the various versions representing mainly refinements, embellishments and different geometrical treatments that share the same basic.

MONTE CARLO IN RADIATION THERAPY. The Monte Carlo techniques have been used in various branches of radiation therapy,[8,9] from simulation of radiation therapy equipments and sources to dose calculation in various geometries.[10–18] For simulation of the photon and electron particles one has to apply the physics of transport for modeling, which requires the knowledge of interactions of the. Modeling photon propagation with Monte Carlo methods is a flexible yet rigorous approach to simulate photon transport. In the method, local rules of photon transport are expressed as probability distributions which describe the step size of photon movement between sites of photon-tissue interaction and the angles of deflection in a photon's trajectory when a scattering event occurs.
