Current Research

  • Monte Carlo simulations of MeV ion penetration/ energy deposition into matter

  • Data acquisition (DAQ) and control systems for analysis and lithography using MeV ion beams.

The image is of an event-by-event Monte Carlo simulation of MeV protons (i.e with millions of electron-volts of energy) plunging into a material. The protons lead to secondary electron (delta-ray) cascades (seen as fiery streaks) that are the predominant mode of energy deposition.
