3. DESCRIPTION

EPICS2017 is the Electron Photon Interaction Cross Section library that provides the atomic data needed to perform coupled Electron-Photon transport calculations, to produce accurate macroscopic results, such as energy deposition and dose. Atomic data is provided for elements, Z = 1 to 100, over the energy range 10 eV to 100 GeV; nuclear data, such as photo-nuclear, and data for compounds, are not included. All of the data are in a simple computer independent text format that is standard and presented to a high precision that can be easily read by computer codes written in any computer language, e.g., C, C++, and FORTRAN.

 

It is as an updating/extension of the EPICS2014 code package. There have been NO CHANGES to this code since its last release with EPICS2014. The only change is to the input EADL data (ENDL.IN), which now includes the latest EADL2017 binding energies, which will obviously change the RELAX calculated results freely distributed at OECD NEA DB and ONRL-RSICC able to handle neutrons energies up to 20 MeV.

 

EPICS2017 include three separate data bases that are designed to be used in combination, these include:

 

1. The Electron Data Library (EEDL) to describe the interaction of electrons with matter

2. The Evaluated Photon Data Library (EPDL) to describe the interaction of electrons with matter

3. The Evaluated Atomic Data Library (EADL) to describe the emission of electrons and photons back to neutrality following an ionizing event, caused by either electron or photon interactions

 

These are available in the Extended ENDL format (ENDLX) in which the evaluations were originally performed, as well as in the ENDF format.
