The Green’s function method was applied to solve the one-dimensional positron diffusion equation for a system consisting of up to four layers that contain defects with different trapping rates. These allow us to obtain the analytical relationships valid for the evaluation of data obtained from variable energy positron measurements. They have been implemented in user-friendly free computer code available to users. Fitting strategies are presented to extract the relevant physical parameters. The code was used to determine positron diffusion length in samples of polycrystalline pure, well-annealed iron, depleted uranium, and titanium.
