Abstract

The basic range concepts have been defined in Sect. 2.4. For not-too-low-energy ions, central quantities are the range along the path R and range straggling \(\Omega_R^2\) specified in (2.17) and (2.18). The focus of this monograph is on the regime of dominating electronic stopping. It is tempting, therefore, to evaluate the integrals on the basis of stopping cross sections and straggling parameters that ignore nuclear stopping altogether. This approach is justified at high beam energies. The main purpose of this chapter is to specify limitations to this simple approach and to provide suitable corrections to cover the energy regime in which they are comparatively small. ...
