Stopping Cross-Sections for Energetic Ions in All Elements shows the stopping cross-sections of energetic ions in various elements in both solid and gas phase targets. The book plots chosen ion and target combinations to allow accurate linear interpolation between plots for all elemental ions and all elemental targets (atomic number 1 through 92). Existing stopping data and summaries of the experimental data are presented as well. Chapters are also devoted to electronic and nuclear stopping of ions. Physicists, researchers, physicians, nuclear scientists, radiologists, and engineers will find the book a good reference material.
