Abstract : The report presents theoretically calculated values of the ionization interaction for protons in numerous materials and compares these values with those of tissue and bone. This was done so that possible dosimetric media may be compared and evaluated for 'dose equivalency.' Results for the linear energy transfer are included. The proton energies are considered from .5 Mev to 1000 Mev. The K and L shell effects upon the stopping power equation are included. The calculation approach and the resultant tabulations are presented in detail for over seventy different materials. (Author)
