|Title:||Comparison of Geant4-DNA simulation of S-values with other Monte Carlo codes|
Le Loirec, C
|Abstract:||Monte Carlo simulations of S-values have been carried out with the Geant4-DNA extension of the Geant4 toolkit. The S-values have been simulated for monoenergetic electrons with energies ranging from 0.1 key up to 20 keV, in liquid water spheres (for four radii, chosen between 10 nm and 1 mu m), and for electrons emitted by five isotopes of iodine (131, 132, 133, 134 and 135), in liquid water spheres of varying radius (from 15 mu m up to 250 mu m). The results have been compared to those obtained from other Monte Carlo codes and from other published data. The use of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test has allowed confirming the statistical compatibility of all simulation results. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.|
