Molecular scale track structure simulations in liquid water using the Geant4-DNA Monte-Carlo processes

Abstract : This paper presents a study of energy deposits induced by ionising particles in liquid water at the molecular scale. Particles track structures were generated using the Geant4-DNA processes of the Geant4 Monte-Carlo toolkit. These processes cover electrons (0.025 eV-1 MeV), protons (1 keV- 100 MeV), hydrogen atoms (1 keV-100 MeV) and alpha particles (10 keV-40 MeV) including their different charge states. Electron ranges and lineal energies for protons were calculated in nanometric and micrometric volumes.
