A Simple Model for Latent Track Formation due to Cluster Ion Stopping and Fragmentation in Solids

Cruz, S.A.; Gamaly, Eugene G; Chadderton, Lewis; Fink, Dietmar


An estimate of the electronic stopping of a swift cluster ion during different stages of penetration in a given material is presented. We take a simplified approach to the stopping process by neglecting vicinage effects on the stopping cross section as well as spatial distortion due to Coulomb forces among ions. The different stages of penetration and energy loss are based on the hypothesis of formation of a transient plasma (the plasma stopping regime) - due to the release of energetic...[Show more]
