Abstract:

The range and energy loss rate for the ions 1H, 4He, 12C, 16O, 20Ne, 28Si, 40Ar, 56Fe, and 84K are given in the energynucleon interval 0.1 - 1200 MeVamu. These quantities are tabulated for the stopping materials cellulose nitrate, cellulose acetate butyrate, HBpaIT polyester, Lexan, Mylar, muscovite and phlogopite mica, soda lime and phosphate glass and olivine. The values for a given stopping material can be extended to other materials with similar values of the mean excitation potential by simple scaling. The computation involved a published mathematical method which was modified and extended to lower energies. Author
