Title

Charge- and Angular-Correlated Inelasticities in MeV/Nucleon Ion-Atom Collisions

Abstract

Using an Elbek high-resolution magnetic spectrograph, we measured energy loss and angular distributions of MeV/nucleon projectile ions in coincidence with target recoil-ion charge state. We investigated collisions of 10 and 20 MeVC6+ on He, Ne, Ar and Kr where the target atom is multiply ionized and the projectile emerges in charge state q or q-1. The amount of energy transferred to the continuum electrons exceeds, by far, the sum of the values of the ionization potentials and shows a strong target-Z dependence. An energy deposition model is used for comparison with the experimental data.
