The simulation uses the well know Monte Carlo method, in which some of the variables affecting the electron trajectory are randomly selected from a specific distribution of values. Based on the simulation of a large number of electrons, it is possible to have a picture of the electron beam''s behaviour inside the specimen under investigation.
The electron trajectories calculations allow the estimation of various process related parameters, such as electron backscattering (coefficient, energy, angular/energy spectral distribution), seocndary electrons, X-rays generation, electron beam depth dose, and in general other paramenters that are linked to the beam energy dissipation properties in the specimen.
The web site reflects the changing nature of the program, and for this reason: if you come across something that is missing, either a single image or a complete subject, please contact me and let me know so the issue can be fixed. Also, if you have any comments, or problems, about the simulation or about the web site, please let me know.
