Observation of the United Carbon-Carbon Atom K-Shell X-Ray Band for Incident Carbon Ion Energies of 30–2500 keV
The centroid energy and x-ray cross section for the non-characteristic carbon-carbon x-ray band produced by 30–2500 keV carbon ions incident on thick solid carbon targets are reported. We test the double collision assumption for the production of these non-characteristic x rays and find that, for 250 keV carbon ions, the experimental results are consistent with this assumption.
