Fragmentation of 1 GeV/nucleon iron ions in thick targets relevant for space exploration
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2005

We have measured charged nuclear fragments produced by 1 GeV/nucleon 56 Fe ions interacting with aluminium, polyethylene and lead. These materials are relevant for assessment of radiation risk for manned space flight. The data will be presented in a form suitable for comparison with models of nuclear fragmentation and transport, including linear energy transfer (LET) spectrum, fluence for iron and fragments, event-tack- and even t-dose-averaged LET, total dose and iron contribution to dose.
