The form of a general theory of cavity ionisation is outlined and its applications to alpha-particle fields considered. The attenuation of the alpha particles within the cavity, which gives rise to the weighting factor in general cavity theory, is considered in detail and an appropriate treatment for alpha-particle fields developed. Apparatus, consisting of… CONTINUE READING
