Abstract

We have calculated the range of protons and alpha particles in NaI scintillator which is a commonly used substance in scintillation detector manufacturing. The electronic stopping power of protons and alpha particles in NaI is calculated first by using the theoretical formulation of Montenegro et al. The range calculation has been performed by applying a technique that we developed in the earlier works. The results are compared with Monte Carlo simulation program SRIM2003 and PRAL. It is found that the obtained results are in satisfactory agreement with the literature.
