Nature of problem:
The code E-DEP-1 calculates the distribution of energy deposited into elastic collisions for a beam of heavy ions coming to rest in an amorphous target material of up to six atomic components.

Solution method:
The program E-DEP-1 is a self-contained package, designed to be easily and economically run by people with little or no prior computing experience. We tried to anticipate modifications users would need and segmented the code into subprograms designed to allow these changes to be made simply and with confidence. The results of E-DEP-1 are compared with those of other theories in a companion paper.

Running time:
Exclusive of compilation time, the code takes approximately 30 s to prepare tables of nuclear and electronic stopping rates, range straggling parameters, etc. The calculation of the deposited energy distribution takes roughly 12 s per beam ion energy. These times are for the case of 9 MeV Fe ions incident on a Fe target. A multi- component target increases the 30 s preparation time somewhat.

Programming language: Fortran.
Computer: CDC 3800.
Operating system: SCOPE.
Classification: 17.2, 17.7.

Nature of problem:
To calculate the lateral range of heavy ions and to extend the lowest energy considered by E-DEP-1 down to 1 keV.

Solution method:
Moments of the range distribution already calculated in a subroutine of E-DEP-1 are combined to obtain the lateral range.

Classification: 17.2, 17.7.

Nature of problem:
To allow the use of improved atomic cross sections for elastic and inelastic stopping, use on improved approximation for energy deposition and to include several other corrections and improvements.

Solution method:
The elastic stopping is that of Wilson, Haggmark and Biersack, while the inelastic stopping is that of Land and Brennan.
