Abstract

Several RPD measurements of ion swarm velocity distributions have been reported the last years, but there is a nearly total lack of related theoretical works. To improve our understanding of these measurements, we have therefore performed a computer simulation study of Li+ ions moving in and sampled from a He gas. Some typical results are shown below.
