1303.4953 (R. Bucik et al.)

Simulation of a Time-Of-Flight Telescope for Suprathermal Ions in the Heliosphere    [PDF]

R. Bucik, A. Korth, U. Mall, G. M. Mason
A Monte Carlo code based on Geant 3.21 has been used for simulations of energy losses and angular scattering in a time-of-flight Suprathermal Ion Telescope (SIT) on the Solar-Terrestrial Relations Observatory (STEREO). A hemispherical isotropic particle distribution, a monoenergetic or power law in energy is used in these simulations. The impact of scattering, energy losses and system noise on the instrument mass resolution is discussed.
