Abstract

A Monte Carlo code has been developed which obtains internal bremsstrahlung (IB) spectra accompanying beta(-) particles of beta(-) particle emitters. For the IB spectra of beta(-) particle emitters, a simple formula has been also proposed by using the theory of Knipp, Uhlenbeck and Bloch (KUB). The IB spectra of P-32(15), Rb-86(37), Sr-89(38), Sr-90(38), Y-90(39), Tc-99(43) Tm-170(69) and W-185(74) obtained by using this code and the KUB theory were compared with experiments.
