Description: This article discusses simultaneous measurement of the average ion-induced electron emission yield and the mean charge for isotachic ions in carbon foils. Knowledge of the incident ion's atomic number (Z₁) dependence of ion-induced electron emission yields can be the basis for a general understanding of ion-atom interaction phenomena and, in particular, for the design of Z₁-sensitive detectors that could be useful, for example, in the separation of isobars in accelerator mass spectrometry.
