Chmelevsky, D.; Kellerer, Albrecht M. (1977): Computation of microdosimetric distributions for small sites. In: Radiation and Environmental Biophysics, Vol. 14, No. 2: pp. 123-136


Object of this study is the computation of microdosimetric functions for sites which are too small to permit experimental determination of the distributions by Rossi-counters. The calculations are performed on simulated tracks generated by Monte-Carlo techniques. The first part of the article deals with the computational procedure. The second part presents numerical results for protons of energies 0.5, 5, 20 MeV and for site diameters of 5, 10, 100 nm.
