Measurements of the stopping forces for heavy ions in Ge, Ag and Au using novel 'polka-dot' detectors

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


Measurements of the stopping forces for C-14, N-14 and O-16 ions in Ge and Au, for N-14 and F-19 ions in Ag, as well as for F-19 ions in Au have been made, respectively. A novel technique, reported recently, using PIN diodes coated directly with the stopping medium in a polka dot pattern was used. This provided a set of precise, self-consistent measurements on the same stopping medium. Results show small but significant deviations from SRIM stopping predictions and are also compared to a recently-developed empirical stopping force predictor.
