ON THE QUESTION OF THE CHARGE, MASS, AND ENERGY BALANCE IN THE COLLISION OF SLOW IONS WITH SOLID STATE ATOMS

Pagination or Media Count:
During the interaction between ions and a pure cold metallic target a whole series of complex processes occurs simultaneously. The bombarding ions, depending on their energy, are able to eject ions and atoms of the target. If the target is contaminated, they may also eject electrons, ions, and atoms of the contamination. During the interaction between ions and heated metallic targets there are observed in the composition of the secondary currents, in addition to the aforementioned particles, ions which have vaporized from the surface and ions that have diffused from the depths of the target, and also thermionic currents. Along with the investigation of the basic parameters of secondary phenomena scattering, vaporization, diffusion, cathode sputtering, thermionic emission, adsorption, absorption, and neutralization of ions, the central problem in particle collisions is the problem of the charge, mass, and energy balance of the colliding particles.
