Fluence-to-effective dose conversion coefficients have been computed for negative and positive muons through Monte Carlo simulations with the FLUKA code. Calculations have been performed for various geometrical conditions of irradiation of an hermaphrodite phantom, placed in a vacuum. The energy range investigated was 1 MeV to 10 TeV. The calculated results are presented and discussed. A graphical presentation of organ doses is also given.
