Abstract : A Monte Carlo electron beam transport program is used to calculate thick target X-ray spectra for use when interpreting X-ray spectral data from plasma generators possessing superthermal electron components. Spectra are calculated for various monoenergetic and continuum electron beams between 5 and 300 keV normally incident upon Al, Cu, Mo, and W targets. Calculations are presented at detection angles of 95, 105, 115, 135, and 175 degrees with respect to the electron beam direction. (Author)
