Description: This article discusses ₁¹H+ - and ₂⁴He+ -induced M-shell x-ray production cross sections for selected elements in the rare-earth region. Abstract: The measurements of M-shell x-ray-production cross sections induced by ₁¹H+ and ₂⁴He+ ions are compared to the first-Born-approximation and ECPSSR (energy loss, Coulomb-deflection effects; perturbed-stationary-state approximation, with relativistic corrections) theories. Most of the reported experimental data were measured in the authors' laboratory and the other measurements were taken from the literature. The data from the authors' laboratory were for incident H+ and He+ ions in the energy range from 0.25 to 2.5 MeV. The M-shell x-ray-production cross sections were measured for the following thin targets: 59Pr, 60Nd, 63Eu, 64Gd, 66Dy, 67Ho, 68Er, 70Yb, and 72Hf. The data were for the following elements: 54Xe, 59Pr, 60Nd, 62Sm, 63Eu, 64Gd, 65Tb, 66Dy, 67Ho, 68Er, 70Yb, 72Hf, 73Ta, 74W, 78Pt, 79Au, 80Hg, 82Pb, 83Bi, and 92U. The first-born-approximation calculations of the ionization cross section were made using the plane-wave Born approximation for direct ionization and the Oppenheimer-Brinkman-Kramers approximation of Nikolaev for electron capture. The ECPSSR theory of Brandt and Lapicki [Phys. Rev. A 23, 1717 (1981)] goes beyond the first Born approximation and accounts for the energy loss, Coulomb deflection, and relativistic ...
