Excitation States of Projectiles Moving through Solids
X-ray spectral measurements of S, Cl, and Ar atoms moving in solid carbon targets are used to extract the equilibrium distribution of vacancies in the valence and L-shells of the projectiles. It is found that the state of excitation is much higher than the mean charge measured after the projectile has left the solid. A simple model is used to deduce the expected final charge state distribution, and these are compared to thin foil measurements.
