Multi-electrode ionization chamber energy loss calculator (MICE)
A gas-filled ionization chamber is well suited for low energy nuclear physics applications such as measuring beam intensities and detecting heavy recoils from nuclear reactions. Recently developed multi-electrode ionization chamber shows great performance in terms of the energy resolution and the maximum counting rate. It requires, however, iterative energy loss calculations for certain applications mainly due to its complex geometry. For easier energy loss calculations, a stopping power calculation code called the Multi-electrode Ionization Chamber Energy Loss Calculator (MICE) has been developed by utilizing the Java programming language. The development procedure, usage, and application of the MICE are reported.
