Cyclotron Institute TAMU - Radiation Effects Testing Facility
CONTROL SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD PAGE
(Updated on April 7, 2020)
The latest (2020) version of the the control software for the Cyclotron Institute TAMU Radiation Effects Testing Facility (SEUSS)
is included in the ZIP archive that can be downloaded from
https://mare.cyclotron.tamu.edu/vladimir/SeussW.zip (15,409 kb).
After downloading the archive, please extract the files it contains into an EMPTY folder of your choice.
The files can be extracted from the archive using the 7-Zip program (included in Windows operating system)
or using the WinZip program
that can be downloaded from the following URL:
To start the program, run SeussW.exe. You may want to make a shortcut to this file and put it on your
Desktop or in another folder
of your choice. The program should run on any Windows operating system that has Notepad and Internet Explorer installed.
The screen resolution should be at least 1024 pixels × 768 pixels. Response from the Facility
hardware will be simulated.
The program can be completely removed from the host computer by deleting the folder in which it is installed.
- New in 2020: For the standard TAMU ion beams propagating in aluminum, aramica, air, and the most common substrates, the LET and range calculations performed by SeussW have been updated.
The results now agree with those obtained using the SR.exe program distributed in 2019. (The file date is 2012-10-16.).
The supported substrates include Si, GaAs, GaN, SiC, SiGe, InP, and NaI.
Others can be added on request.
An option is available to run these calculations in the legacy mode.
- New in 2020: The range table is more refined and more precise.
The first row of the table reflects the actual setting.
The table caption contains the Bragg-peak parameters.
- New in 2020: The message box on run pause also specifies the accumulated dose in rad.
- New in 2020: The run number increment can be set to an arbitrary positive integer.
- New in 2015: Support for the K150 cyclotron Radiation Testing Beamline has been added
- New in 2014: 24.8 MeV/u Ag has been added to the list of routinely available beams
- New in 2010: 15.0 MeV/u He, 15.0 MeV/u N, 24.8 MeV/u He, 24.8 MeV/u N, and 40.0 MeV/u N have been added to the list of routinely available beams
- New in 2010: Number of supported layers has been increased from 10 (0-9) to 100 (0-99)
- New in 2008: Computerized roll angle control for in-air setup
- On a machine running a 64-bit version of any Windows operating system (XP, Vista, 7 or 8), the Help button (present in the SEUSSW Users control group
and in all the programs that are launched using the buttons from that group) will not work until you copy the file "iexplore.exe" from your Windows folder
to the SEUSS folder. Alternatively, the help pages can be accessed starting at
- This program features ion energy loss calculations that are provided for the convenience of its users.
While the calculations are based on the commonly accepted methods and practices, the author of the program makes
no warranties that the results are accurate and shall not be liable for any damage that may result from the use
of these results.
