Abstract: Monte Carlo simulations of the propagation of an LPA electron bunch through a vacuum-air window are presented. The bunch features have been chosen according to the latest results obtained at the Intense Laser Trradiation Laboratrory. The simulated setup, including an electron collimator, has been designed in view of a possible application to radiobiological studies. Furthermore, the dose deposition in a water phantom outside the window has been simulated.
