Recoil-ion-production cross sections in rare gases are measured for 1.4-MeV/amu U44+ ions and are calculated for 1-5-MeV/amu projectiles in charge state 44 + with the use of the classical-trajectory Monte Carlo method and the independent-electron model. The calculations reasonably predict the net-charge-production cross sections, which exceed 10-13 cm2 for the heavy rare gases; the calculations are found to underestimate the cross sections for low-charge-state recoil ions and to overestimate the cross sections for high-charge-state recoil ions. The experimental cross sections for production of highly charged recoil ions are found to be large, e.g., greater than 1x10-16 cm2 for production of Ne8+, Ar10+, Kr12+, and Xe18+. © 1982 The American Physical Society.
