Angular distributions of sputtered atoms from SiO2 and LiF single crystals were measured under the irradiation of 1 MeV/u swift heavy ions. In contrast to the almost isotropic distribution of SiO2, an additional jetlike component was observed for LiF. The total sputtering yield of SiO2 ( approximately 10(2) atoms/ion) can be reproduced by an extended… CONTINUE READING
