The depth-dose distribution, relative to the entrance dose, and the stopping power ratio for a carbon ion beam in water for set 5 are shown.
Shown is the water-to-air stopping power ratio for sets 1–5 from Table II for a carbon ion beam as a function of the depth in water. The is compared to the IAEA constant value of 1.13.
Water-to-air stopping power ratio for sets 3 and 5 (Table II) as a function of depth in water for beams of different energy in MeV/u. The fluctuations in the data set calculated with ICRU tabulated data (set 3) are present for all beam energies.
Water-to-air stopping power ratios for set 5 are shown according to the residual range of carbon beams for 5 different beam energies in water.
Shown is the influence of secondary particles on the water-to-air stopping power ratio for a carbon ion beam. Compared to the from all particles, it increases for tritium to the end of the particle range.
Dose distribution (line) of a SOBP and the calculated stopping power ratio (squares) as a function of depth in water.
Overview of the common published mean ionization potentials for water and tabulated stopping power data found in ICRU reports.
An overview of the combination of values for water and air, which we use for stopping power ratio calculations.
