Abstract

An analysis of experimental fully differential data for single ionization in 100 MeV/amu C6++He collisions is reported. We present a convolution of the first Born approximation with elastic scattering by using an event generator technique. Furthermore, the calculation is convoluted with all known experimental resolutions. Our analysis shows that elastic scattering is a viable explanation for surprising structures observed in the fully differential cross sections outside the scattering plane. Furthermore, it may even explain discrepancies in the “recoil peak” frequently observed for both ion and electron impact.
