Ion Beam Analysis Software
CORTEO - Monte Carlo simulation program
Corteo does MC simulations of ion beam analysis spectra within a few seconds or minutes and can be used for RBS, ERD, RBS-TOF, ERD-TOF, and coincidence of identical ions. Corteo computes the trajectory of ions in materials, based on binary collision, central potential, and random phase approximations.
Corteo was developed by François Schiettekatte at the Département de physique, Université de Montréal, Canada.
CrystalDraw - Visualisation of RBS-channelling experimental set up
Analysis of RBS spectra from He ion beams on layered structures using differential evolution optimization.
Calculation of channelling RBS spectra of single crystals for given defect distribution (displaced lattice atoms, some other types of defects), and vice versa.
GUPIXWIN is a program for fitting PIXE spectra from thin, thick, intermediate and layered specimens. GUPIXWIN extracts peak intensities and converts these to concentrations via the H-value standardization method. X-ray excitation may be via protons, deuterons, He-3 or He-4 ions; X-ray spectrometry may be via SDD, Si(Li) or Ge detectors. Interactive or batch. GUPIXWIN is maintained and developed by J. L. Campbell, Department of Physics, University of Guelph, Canada.
Merge various RBS spectra from a multi-detector setup that have a slightly varying energy calibration.
MSA - Mass Spectra Analysis
Mass Spectra Analysis (MSA) allows the analysis and transformation of a 2 dimensional ToF-ERDA spectra into a 1 dimensional mass spectrum.
NDF - General purpose code for data analysis of Ion Beam Analysis Data
NDF is a DOS code dedicated to the analysis of RBS, ERDA, PIXE, non-resonant NRA and NDP data for any ion, any target, any geometry, and number of spectra. The full version includes a recent SIMS addition, local search fitting, simulated annealing fitting and Bayesian inference. NDF was developed by Nuno Pessoa Barradas at Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal.
Potku is a graphical user interface for processing and analysis of list-mode data; Monte Carlo simulation of ERD energy spectra including multiple and plural scattering effects and detector performance. Potku is currently maintained and developed by University of Jyväskylä‘s Accelerator Based Materials Physics group at the Accelerator Laboratory.
Potku is an open source analysis software and can be used to
- perform time-of-flight calibration
- study composition changes over the length of the measurement
- create energy spectra from time-of-flight spectra (to export measurement to other software
- create depth profiles
- MCERD simulations and compare the measured ToF-ERDA data to simulated data
- automatically fit the simulated composition profile to match the experimental profiles
SIMNRA - Simulation of RBS, ERDA, NRA, MEIS and PIGE
SIMNRA is used for the evaluation of ion beam analysis data and was developed by Matej Mayer at the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasma Physics, Garching, Germany. SIMNRA supports the simulation of Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS), elastic backscattering spectrometry with non-Rutherford cross-sections (EBS), nuclear reaction analysis (NRA), elastic recoil detection analysis (ERDA), medium energy ion scattering (MEIS), and particle induced gamma-ray emission (PIGE).

SPACES - Simulation of narrow resonance excitation curves
Ion-Solid Interaction Software
Simulation of the spatial distribution of the ionizing events around the swift ion path. Monte-Carlo simulation of ion interaction with target electron and 3D dynamic Monte-Carlo of electron cascade. CIRILION was developed by CNRS – CIMAP and GANIL.
Crystal-TRIM - Simulation of Ion-Solid Interactions
Monte-Carlo simulation of ion irradiation effects (ion ranges, sputtering, damage formation) in single crystalline Si, Ge, C based on the binary collision simulation, including model of dynamic damage accumulation. Crystal-TRIM was developed by Matthias Posselt at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e.V., Germany.
Flux7 simulates the trajectories of high energy ions in single crystals in a channeling or near- channeling direction using the binary collision approximation. The effective flux density across the lattice plane is evaluated. FLUX7 was developed by Peter Smulders.
iradina - ion range and damage in nanostructures
Fully 3D static Monte-Carlo simulation of ion irradiation effects (ion ranges, sputtering, ion mixing, damage formation) based on the binary collision simulation.
Kalypso is a molecular dynamics software package for simulation of atomic collisions in solid targets and at surfaces. Kalypso was developed by Marcus Karolewski.
Molecular Dynamics for Supported 2D Materials
A LAMMPS based molecular dynamics script allows to simulate ion irradiation of 2D Materials on a substrate in an efficient way. As an example, a modified Stillinger-Weber potential for MoS2 in combination with the ZBL potential is implemented. For interaction with the substrate, an external potential is added in LAMMPS, and energy and angle distributions of atoms emitted from the substrate (backscattered ions and sputtered substrate atoms), as generated by TRIDYN simulations, are taken into account. The LAMMPS and TRIDYN scripts were developed by Silvan Kretschmer at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.
SDTrimSP (Static and Dynamic Trim for Sequental and Parallel computer) is a 1D/2D/3D dynamic Monte-Carlo simulation of ion irradiation effects (ion ranges, sputtering, ion mixing, damage formation) based on the binary collision simulation. SDTrimSP was developed by the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics.
SRIM - The Stopping and Range of Ions in Matter
SRIM is a collection of software packages to calculate different features of the transport of ions in matter. Applications of the software include Ion Stopping and Range in Targets, Ion Implantation, Sputtering, Ion Transmission, and Ion Beam Therapy. SRIM was developed by James F. Ziegler.
