Abstract [en]

The lateral and longitudinal distributions of absorbed dose of broad and narrow

light ion beams in water are investigated. An analytical algorithm based on the

generalized Fermi–Eyges theory is developed and used to calculate the effects

of multiple scattering and range straggling on the dose distribution of light ion

beams in water. A first-order Gaussian multiple scattering and energy loss

straggling approach is generally sufficiently accurate for describing the lateral

and longitudinal spread of the Bragg peak and the associated energy deposition

distribution of therapeutic light ion beams at ranges of clinical interest. Nuclear

reactions are not taken into account in this study. The analytical algorithm

given in the present study allows an accurate description of the radial spread

and the range straggling of light ions traversing matter. A verification of this

approach by comparing with experimental data, Monte Carlo methods and

other analytical techniques will be presented in a forthcoming paper.
