Bremsstrahlung Yield Calculation
Bremstrahlung from secondary electrons and positrons created
by pair creation has been treated by a simplified method which neglects
electrons/positrons movements inside materials using a discrete ordinate
from recoil electrons after Compton scattering must also be
considered for precise calculations of the photon dose inside materials.
It is required to provide data concerning the double differential
bremsstrahlung yields after pair production and Compton
scattering for a discrete ordinate code. The EGS4 user code, ucbrempc.mor,
was written for this purpose.
In KEK Internal 2002-5, outlines of ucbrempc.mor and the input data
are presented together with the calculated results for lead.
