Abstract

In this study, we present a complete set of positron interaction cross sections for scattering from Ar, for incident energies ranging from 0 to 10 keV. Experimental data have been critically reviewed from previous experiments performed at the Australian National University and University College London. Differential and integral cross sections, including the effect of positronium formation, have been calculated by using two different optical potential methods. The results of these calculations, in combination with experimental cross sections and experimental energy-loss spectra, have been established as input parameters for an event-by-event Monte Carlo simulation procedure to generate single positron tracks in argon. The reliability of this method to obtain energy deposition models at the nano-scale is also discussed.
