Schauries, Daniel; Afra, Boshra; Bierschenk, Thomas; Lang, M; Rodriguez, Matias; Trautmann, C.; Li, Weixing; Ewing, R. C.; Kluth, Patrick


Small angle X-ray scattering measurements were performed on natural apatite of different thickness irradiated with 2.2 GeV Au swift heavy ions. The evolution of the track radius along the full ion track length was estimated by considering the electronic energy loss and the velocity of the ions. The shape of the track is nearly cylindrical, slightly widening with a maximum diameter approximately 30 μm before the ions come to rest, followed by a rapid narrowing towards the end within a cigar-like...[Show more]
