Z13-Dependent Stopping Power and Range Contributions

The stopping power of a target, composed of atoms with atomic number Z2, for a projectile of charge Z1e and velocity v1, depends in first Born approximation on the projectile charge as (Z1e)2. Recently [1], we extended this theory to include the (Z1e)3 dependence in a classical treatment which is equivalent to a second Born approximation. The Z1 3 contribution was calculated for the statistical model of the target atom in the Lenz-Jensen approximation.

    A more definitive treatment of mean excitation potentials is planned based on the more recent stopping power data of H. Sørensen and H. H. Andersen (Phys. Rev., to be published). This later data extends the work of Ref. 10 to higher energies and includes several heavier elements.Google Scholar
