Ion Beam Handbook for Material Analysis emerged from the U.S.-Italy Seminar on Ion Beam Analysis of Near Surface Regions held at the Baia-Verde Hotel, Catania, June 17-20, 1974. The seminar was sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche under the United States-Italy Cooperative Science Program. The book provides a useful collection of tables, graphs, and formulas for those involved in ion beam analysis. These tables, graphs, and formulas are divided into five chapters that cover the following topics: energy loss and energy straggling; backscattering spectrometry; channeling; applications of ion-induced nuclear reactions; and the use of ion-induced X-ray yields.
