A Tissue Equivalent Proportional Counter (TEPC) is used for radiation monitoring and metrology. Optimization of the design of these devices can be performed by computational modelling. This paper describes a simulation technique developed to understand and model the response of a wall-less TEPC under photon irradiation.
