Interaction of a Charged Particle With a Semi Infinite Non Polar Dielectric Liquid
We investigate the classical interaction between a charged particle and a semi-infinite non-polar dielectric liquid. The classical results, in the long-distance regime, agree with a previous quantum-mechanical approach , which was used to describe the energy loss of an ion travelling parallel to the liquid surface (see also ref.). The results in the (non-linear) short-distance regime provide information that was not available in the linearized quantum-mechanical calculations of the energy loss.
