The databases ESTAR, PSTAR, and ASTAR calculate stopping-power and range tables for electrons, protons, or helium ions, according to methods described in ICRU Reports 37 and 49. Stopping-power and range tables can be calculated for electrons in any user-specified material and for protons and helium ions in 74 materials.
