Abstract

Interaction cross sections for bare heavy charged (HZE) particles are obtained from proton interaction cross sections by scaling laws. Proton interaction cross sections are calculated within the (relativistic) plane wave Born approximation and the modelled dielectric response function of liquid water. Relativistic polarisation effects (Fermi density effect) are discussed. The interaction model is implemented into the biophysical track structure simulation code PARTRAC.
