Measurement of x-rays emitted from projectiles moving in solid targets

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The results of three separate experiments all dealing with the production of x-rays in projectiles moving in solids are discussed. The first experiment deals with the measurement of line widths of x-rays emitted from projectiles moving in solid targets. The effect of collisional broadening of x- rays is found to dominate the line widths giving greater than an order of magnitude increase in the measured line widths. The second experiment studies ''solid target effects'' in producing non-binomial distributions of characteristic K x-ray spectra in heavy ion-atom collisions. The third experiment studies aluminum K x-ray production in Ar$sup +$ $Yields$ Al ... continued below

The second experiment studies ''solid target effects'' in producing non-binomial distributions of characteristic K x-ray spectra in heavy ion-atom collisions. The third experiment studies aluminum K x-ray production in Ar$sup +$ $Yields$ Al collisions in very thin aluminum foils as a function of foil thickness. Parameterization of the observed non-linear dependence enables the lifetime of the argon 2p vacancy and total ionization cross sections for the argon L-shell in Ar $Yields$ Al collisions to be measured.
