In the College of Education for Girls a discussion of the tagged master’s thesis (a study of the ability of heavy charged particles to stop the biological parts of the human body) took place.
The thesis presented by student Saddam Abdul-Hussein Abd Ali from the Department of Physics and supervised by Professor Rashid Awaid Kazem aimed at calculating the electronic stopping power of heavy charged particles (protons and alpha particles) in some tissues of the human body (Water, Bone (Compact), Muscle) skeletal), Skin tissue, Trachea, Adipose tissue (within the energy range 1-100000 KeV), using Ziegler equations and establishing a quasi-experimental relationship to calculate the stopping capacity in six tissues under study and an energy range of (500-200000) keV. The effect of the atomic number of targets was studied. The six on the electronic stopping ability of heavy charged particles as well as calculating the stopping time of heavy charged particles (protons and alpha particles) falling on the targets (tissues) studied within the energy range (1-100000) KeV, as well as the stopping power of heavy charged particles (protons, alpha particles) on the targets. (Tissue) studied as a function of wavelength and calculate the mass stopping power of the protons in the studied tissues.
It found that the electronic stopping ability of shells (protons, alpha particles) increases with the increase in the atomic number of the shell, and that Ziegler’s equations are suitable for calculating the electronic stopping power of protons and alpha particles in the elements and some human body tissues in the range of energies (1-100000) keV.
