Abstract

• An analytical formula is obtained for proton Bragg curves in LiF. • Simulated proton LET curves in LiF are successfully analytically reproduced. • Proton-LiF interaction creates color centers that photoluminesce in the visible. • LiF crystals are used as detectors for multienergetic proton beams. • Proton energy spectra are estimated from photoluminescence profiles in LiF.
