The depth distribution of damage energy deposited in solids by energetic ions has been calculated and results are compared with the experimental damage found in copper which has been irradiated with 1016 1-MeV protons at ambient temperature. The general form of the experimental damage profile from the transmission electron microscope measurements agrees well with that calculated.
