Electronic stopping power formula for energetic ions

Condensed Matter


Electronic stopping power has been calculated for H, He, Li, C, O, Mg and Si ion projectiles in Al, Ni, Ag and Au substrates. Ion energies range from 0.2 MeV/amu to 30 MeV/amu. The stopping power formular has been expressed as the sum of a modified Bethe formula and a modified Lindhard-Scharff-Schiøtt (LSS) formula. In both formulas effective charges have been applied, computed on the basis of the universal electronic density suggested by Gáspár.
