Deposit energy distribution in microscopic site is basic information for understanding of biological effects of energetic heavy ion beams. To estimate RBE, lineal energy, $$y$$, can be an appropriate physical index. In this work, a wall-less tissue equivalent proportional counter has been designed and used for the measurement of $$y$$ distributions, $$y$$$$f$$($$y$$), for 160 MeV H, 150 MeV/u He, 290 MeV/u C, 490 MeV/u Si and 500 MeV/u Ar. Data of $$y$$$$f$$($$y$$) were also obtained in the wide range of LET. The dose-means of $$y$$, $$overline{y}$$$$_{D}$$, were compared with those calculated by the microdosimetric function of PHITS. It is found that the calculated $$y$$$$f$$($$y$$) and $$overline{y}$$$$_{D}$$ agree fairly well with those measured. The values of $$overline{y}$$$$_{D}$$ are larger than those of LET less than $$sim$$10 keV/$$mu$$m because of the discrete energy deposition by delta rays, while the relation is reversed above 10 keV/$$mu$$m. The results indicate that care should be taken in the difference between $$overline{y}$$$$_{D}$$ and LET when the values of RBE of energetic heavy ions are estimated.

Deposit energy distribution in microscopic site is basic information for understanding of biological effects of energetic heavy ion beams. To estimate RBE, lineal energy, y, can be an appropriate physical index. In this work, a wall-less tissue equivalent proportional counter has been designed and used for the measurement of y distributions, $$yf(y)$$, for 160 MeV H, 150 MeV/u He and 490 MeV/u Si ion beams. Data of $$yf(y)$$ and the dose-means of $$y$$, $$overline{y}_D$$, were compared with those calculated by the microdosimetric function of PHITS. It is found that the calculated $$yf(y)$$ and $$overline{y}_D$$ agree fairly well with those measured, as well as the already reported result of 290 MeV/u carbon beam.

A wall-less tissue equivalent proportional counter, wall-less TEPC, has been designed and used for the measurement of the y distributions for energetic heavy ions in order to verify a biological dose calculation model incorporated in the PHITS code. It is found that the dose-mean value of y obtained by the wall-less TEPC is 50 - 60% of the LET of the argon ions in water, since the delta-rays with relatively low y can be measured.

The frequency distribution of the lineal energy of 290 MeV/u carbon beam was measured using a wall-less tissue equivalent proportional counter (wall-less TEPC) in a cylindrical volume with simulated diameter 0.72 $$mu$$m in verifying the accuracy of a dose calculation model. The measured lineal energy distribution as well as its dose-mean value agreed fairly well with the corresponding data from microdosimetric calculations using the PHITS code within the experimental uncertainty. It is found that a wall-less TEPC is needed to measure the precise energy deposition spectra of the delta rays produced secondarily by energetic heavy ion beams. The measured data also indicate that more than 11% of the energy escaped from the path of the trajectory of the carbon beam.

Knowledge of energy deposition at micrometer dimensions along heavy ion tracks is essential to understand the biological effects of radiation. Wall-less tissue equivalent proportional counter (wall-less TEPC) was produced for the purpose of measurement of lineal energy distribution including secondary-produced high-energy electrons, delta-rays. The measurement using the wall-less TEPC was performed at Heavy Ion Medical Accelerator at NIRS, Japan. It is found that lineal energy distributions could be measured for primary carbon beam with energy of 400MeV per nucleon and delta-rays. Detail of the experiment, energy calibration and estimation of delta-rays production will be presented.

A study of differential photo-neutron yields by irradiation with 2 GeV electrons has been carried out. In this extension of a previous study in which measurements were made at an angle of 90 degrees. Relative to incident electrons, the differential photoneutron yield was obtained at two other angles, 48 and 140 degrees, to study its angular characteristics. Photo-neutron spectra were measured using a pulsed beam time-of-flight method and a BC418 plastic scintillator. The reliable range of neutron energy measurement was 8-250 MeV. The neutron spectra were measured for 10 Xo-thick Cu, Sn, W and Pb targets. The angular distribution characteristics, together with the previous results for 90, are presented in the study. The experimental results are compared with Monte Carlo calculation results. The yields predicted by MCNPX 2.5 tend to underestimate the measured ones. The same trend holds for the comparison results using the EGS4 and PICA3 codes.

Energy deposition of secondary charged particles produced in tissue irradiated by heavy ion beams is important information in order to evaluate biological effects of cells. In this study a wall-less tissue equivalent proportional counter (wall-less TEPC) was designed and its performance tests have been carried out using checking sources such as a Cm-244 $$alpha$$ source. It is found that the wall-less TEPC can be used in measurements of energy deposition in tissue irradiated by heavy ion beams, based on measurements of gas gain in tissue equivalent gas and lineal energy distributions.
