In this manuscript, we have used the recently developed Fα-calculus to calculate the energy straggling function through the fractal distributed structures. We have shown that such a fractal structure of space causes the fractal pattern of the energy loss. Also, we have offered Fα-differential Fokker–Planck equation for thick fractal absorbers.
