Paper Abstract

Dose distributions of the secondary electrons were calcualted by Monte Carlo code EGS4 in water nera an infinitesimal area photon microbeam. The photon eneryg was from 10 to 100 keV, the radial resolution was 2 μm and the statistical error was from 0.1 to 1-2 percent depending on the calculation point. The Compton recoil electron and photoelectron dose fractions were separated from the dose profiles and fitted by simple analytical functions.
