Abstract

Lindhard's dielectric theory of energy loss is applied to the stopping of energetic ions in solids. The Lindhard formalism, in combination with the local density approximation and the concept of effective charge, is used to calculate the stopping powers of heavy ions in many targets and over a wide range of projectile energies. Theoretically calculated stopping powers are compared with available experimental data.
