Abstract

Thin films of phenylalanine evaporated onto Al foils were irradiated by MeV beams of N, Ne, S, Ar, Ca, Ni, Kr, Sn, W, Pb and U using the accelerator facilities of ALICE/Orsay and UNILAC/GSI-Darmstadt. By means of time-of-flight mass spectrometry the emission of secondary ions was investigated as function of the charge state q of the primary ion. Experiments show that the yields of ions correlated with molecular structure like (M 1)± depend in addition strongly on the equilibrium charge inside the solid. These findings lead to conclusions about the time and the area of emission relative to the primary ions impact.
