The electronic and nuclear stopping of energetic ions

Abstract

The electronic contribution to stopping of 127 ion-target combinations is calculated by the use of an expression for scaling from proton stopping powers. The scaling is found to be accurate, with a standard error of 4.5% relative to experimental measurements. Also, an evaluation is made of a recently proposed nuclear stopping formalism and evidence is found that it is more accurate than LSS nuclear stopping.
