Dose distribution of a proton beam in water phantom calculated by code SRNA-2KG

A parallel beam of protons from a disk source (diameter 15 mm) impinges on a PMMA compensator (cylindrical symmetry) and on a spherical water phantom approximating an eye (figure 1). All elements are in vacuum. If discrete regions are used for dose calculations (depth-dose and isodose curves), use voxels with dimensions 0.5 x 0.5 x 0.5 mm3. The results should be normalized to one primary proton

NUMERICAL EXPERIMENTS BY SRNA-2KG CODE The SRNA-2KG is a Monte Carlo code for use in proton transport, radiotherapy, and dosimetry. Protons within an energy range of 100 keV to 250 MeV with pre-specified spectra are transported in a 3D geometry through material zones confined by planes and second order surfaces or in 3D voxelized geometry. The simulation of proton transport is based on the multiple scattering theory of charged particles and on a model for compound nucleus decay. For each part of the range, an average loss of energy is calculated with a fluctuation from Vavilovs distribution. The deflection angle of protons is sampled from Moliere distribution.
