A New Model Formulation for Electron Interactions in Ge

H. Arabshahi and G.R. Ebrahimi    

Abstract: A Monte Carlo model that simulates the primary electron production inside the photoconductors mentioned, for a number of monoenergetic and polyenergetic x-ray spectra that cover the mammographic energies has been developed. The model simulates the primary photon interactions (photoelectric absorption, coherent and incoherent scattering) as well as the atomic deexcitations (fluorescent photon production, Auger and Coster-Kronig electron emission). In addition, a mathematical formulation has been developed for the drifting of primary electrons of a-Ge in vacuum under the influence of a capacitor’s electric field and the electron characteristics on the collecting electrode are being studied. The formulation is based on the Newton’s equations of motion and the theorem for kinetic energy change. Furthermore, a code has been developed that calculates the distribution of the electric potential inside a-Ge using an existing analytical solution, the boundary values of the case and certain numerical calculation methods. Finally, the structure and the mathematical formulation of a model that would simulate the electron interactions inside a-Ge have been developed. An existing model has been reexamined and enriched with certain theoretical considerations and simulation formalisms.
