Effect of Recombination between a Molecular Ion and an Electron on Radial Dose in the Irradiation of a Heavy Ion

This paper discusses the effect of recombination between a molecular ion and a free electron on radial dose in the irradiation of a heavy ion through simulations. This irradiation produces molecular ions and free electrons due to the heavy ion impact ionization. The composition electric field, which is formed from these molecular ions, traps some of free electrons and these trapped free electrons increase radial dose near the heavy ion path. These trapped electrons also cause the recombination and that the recombination enhances radial dose.
