Title Measurements of the mean energy-loss of swift heavy ions in carbon with high precision

English abstract
Z1 dependent effects in heavy ion stopping around stopping maximum under conditions of equilibrium charge have been measured with a time of flight-energy elastic recoil detection analysis (ToF-E ERDA) set-up. The ToF section was used to tag individual recoil atoms with their energy prior to entering the stopping foil and the exit energy was measured subsequently using a Si p-i-n charged particle detector. The mean energy-loss and average energy of recoils have been determined for many elements with Z1=3-26 in a continuous energy range from ~0.2 to ~0.9 MeV per nucleon and from ~0.03 to 0.1 MeV per nucleon for 79Au. The stopping power and energy dependence were in good agreement with most literature data. However, considerable discrepancies in the energy dependence were observed with semi-empirical SRIM-2000 estimates around the stopping power maximum for some of the elements. This technique, which allows direct measurement of Z1 effects in stopping foils to be performed with high-precision, showed that the dependence of the experimentally determined stopping number (Lexp) with the stopping parameter clustered around a trend line with Z1 dependent deviations that exceeded the estimated uncertainty. The deviations were more significant for large and were 15% between 9Be and 7Li at =10.
