     We study the variation of the number of the Frenkel pairs produced in metals and alloys subjected to ion-radiation versus the damage energy over wide energy range from 10 eV to 100 KeV. For that propose, we use the well know Monte Carlo code, named SRIM, for different kind of ions and targets metals.

We will show that in the framework of this code that the number of the Frenkel pairs does neither depend on the ion nor on the target masses. We will also compare our results to those obtained by Bacon  et al in the framework of Molecular Dynamic simulations.


Keywords: Monte-Carlo code; Frenkel pairs.
