A loop nucleation and evolution model in Si+ implanted Silicon was previously introduced . In this study, the model is extended to predict end of range (EOR) and projected range defect nucleation and evolution created by different ion implant species such as Germanium, Arsenic and Boron. The model assumes that all the nucleated loops come from 311 unfaulting and the loop density and average loop radius follow a log normal distribution. The model is verified with the experimental data obtained from literature for Germanium , Arsenic  and Boron  implanted Silicon for different implant doses and energies. Modeling results are in agreement with the experimental results.
