As a fast heavy-ion passes through a material medium, it undergoes multiple collisions in which electrons are continuously lost and recaptured by the ion, and as a result, an equilibrium distribution of excited states is quickly established. The high density of electrons in a solid state environment enables these collisional excitation and decay processes to compete with x-ray and Auger decay. As a result, the widths of the x-ray lines exhibit a dependence on electron density due to collisional… CONTINUE READING
