Energy Deposit and Range Calculations for Heavy Charged Particles Using the Bethe-Bloch Formula and Continuous Slowing Down Approximation (CSDA)

The aim of my project is to create a program that makes use of the Bethe-Bloch equation and calculates energy deposit and range for different particles in different materials. The calculator will plot the energy loss per unit length over the kinetic energy of the incoming particle, as well as the energy loss per unit length over the range where one can see where the Bragg Peak is located. I will make a graphical user interface in ROOT where the user will be able to choose from many different materials and the type and energy of the incoming particle.
