    Abstract

    The radiation effectiveness of heavy charged particles relative to radiations of fast electrons, x-rays, and gamma rays has been studied experimentally as well as theoretically for detectors of a thir nylon-based radiation-sensitive film and for the amino acid alanine. Experimental data have been compared with calculated data derived from a theoretical model describing the track structure of heavy charged particles.

    The experimental work comprises dose-response characteristics from 60Co Υ-rays, 4- and 16-MV x-rays, 6-, 10-, and 20-MeV electrons, and 3-, 6-, and 16-MeV protons, 10- and 20-MeV crparticles, 21-MeV 7Li Ions, 12-MeV 14N ions, 61-MeV 160 ions, and 80-MeV 32S ions.

    The theoretical work presented here concerns an investigation and modification of parameters involved in the calculations, based on results obtained through the present experiments and published results from other investigators.

    This report summarizes results already published or accepted for publication, attaches an appendix, and includes results not previously presented.
