Current prospects on Low Energy Particle Track Simulation for biomedical applications
The Low Energy Particle Track Simulation code is a radiation interaction simulation tool specifically designed to describe electron and positron interactions below 10. keV at a molecular level. Relying on carefully selected, preferentially experimental input parameters that account for all expected scattering processes, it provides detailed results about all collisional events undergone by an incident radiation particle during its slowdown until thermalisation. Here, we give an up-to-date description of its input data sources and selection procedure and summarise the current contents of the resulting database. 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
