Abstract:

Stopping powers derivable from Lindhards dielectric theory of stopping for a charged particle in a uniform electron gas are calculated as a continuous function of electron density for a wide variety of projectile energies ranging from 100 to 10000 keVamu. Results are presented for electron densities varying from 10x22 to 10x32 electrons per cubic centimeter, a range which includes electron densities generally found for the energy bands of solids and for the atomic levels of atoms.
