Abstract:

Range-energy relationships for protons penetrating silicon and quartz are presented for the energy region 100 kev to 100 Mev. The range of protons in Si is obtained from range data in A1, corrected by the inverse mass stopping power ration of the two elements. Low energy data 100 kev to 1 Mev for A1 are recalculated by graphical integration of the reciprocal mass stopping power curve. Ranges in A1 for protons greater than 1 Mev in energy are taken from the literature. The data for SiOsub2 are calculated from data on Si and gaseous Osub2 based on Braggs contributions made by the individual atoms of the compound. To complete the picture, range-energy relationships for electrons are also presented.
