An algorithm for LET-analysis.
In: Physics in Medicine and Biology, Vol. 17, No. 2: pp. 232-240
An algorithm for the derivation of LET-distributions from pulse- height spectra obtained with proportional counters is described. The method is based on Fourier transformation: it is applicable to spherical as well as non-spherical proportional counters. The relation between the energy mean, LD, of LET and the energy mean, yD, of the lineal energy density is given.
