Abstract

With reference to Fig. 4.1 one may first note that significant progress has been made over the past few years in the understanding of heavy-ion stopping over the entire velocity range covered in the graph. A fairly comprehensive survey has been given in a recent conference (Andersen and Sigmund, 2002). The highly relativistic regime is well-covered by the theory of Lindhard and Soerensen (1996). Further down in speed lies the domain of the binary theory and of the CasP code. While the range of validity of the binary theory reaches well below the stopping maximum, that of the CasP code is more restricted because of the lack of shell and Barkas-Andersen corrections. The theory of Arista (2002) has been geared toward low projectile speeds but is becoming successful also around and above the stopping maximum. The theory of Maynard & al. (2001) is particularly successful in connection with hot (plasma) targets. ...
