Monte Carlo calculations of quasidiffusion in silicon

Phonon And Ionization Detectors


Monte Carlo study of high-energy phonon propagation with elastic scattering and frequency down-conversion is reported. Experimentally observed exponential decay of phonon intensity at late arrival times is well reproduced. The phonon focusing is crucial for accounting for the overall shape of the observed phonon spectrum.
