Stopping Power and Range for Nuclei
Stopping power and range values can be deduced for any ion in a non-crystalline material based on semiempirical proton stopping power values. The theory of ion-solid interactions is well established, but too complete
to present here. It has been discussed in detail, e.g., by Ziegler, Biersack, and Littmark1, where the authors also
describe the computer program TRIM2 which can be used for calculating stopping power and range for ion/target
combinations with Z≤92.
Nuclear Stopping: The total stopping power St , is the sum of the electronic stopping power, Se , due to interactions with target electrons, and the nuclear stopping power, Sn , due to interactions with target nuclei.

St = Se + Sn .

(1)

For sufficiently high projectile energies, St ≈Se .

Sn , in units of eV/(1015 atoms/cm2), for any projectile with energy E (kev), is given by
8.462Z 1Z 2M 1Sn (ε)
Sn (E ) = hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
,
(M 1 + M 2)(Z 10.23 + Z 20.23 )

(2)

where the reduced ion energy, ε, is defined as
32.53M 1M 2(E /M 1)
ε = hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
,
Z 1Z 2(M 1 + M 2)(Z 10.23 + Z 20.23 )

(3)

M 1 and M 2 are the projectile and target masses (amu), and Z 1 and Z 2 are the projectile and target atomic
numbers. For ε≤30 keV,
ln(1 + 1.1383ε)
Sn (ε) = hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
.
2(ε + 0.01321ε0.21226 + 0.19593ε0.5)

(4)

For ε>30 keV, unscreened nuclear stopping is used, and Sn (ε) simplifies to
lnε
Sn (ε) = hhh .

(5)

S can be converted to units of MeV/(mg/cm2) by multiplying by 0.6022/M 2.
Experimental proton stopping power data are summarized by Anderson and Ziegler3. Reliable data are
available for many elements over a wide range of energies. However, in order to obtain values for all elements
over a continuous range of proton energies, the authors fit curves through the available experimental data to generate coefficients for use in a semi-empirical parameterization of the stopping power as a function of proton energy
E (keV) and the target atomic number Z 2. Se is assumed to be proportional to E 0.45 for E <25 keV, except for
Z 2≤6, where it is proportional to E 0.25; for 25 keV≤E ≤10 MeV, Ziegler et al. use

and the coefficients Ai for each Z 2, available from TRIM2 (which supersedes reference 1), are shown in Table 1.
For 10 MeV≤E≤2 GeV, TRIM2 includes four additional coefficients A 9 through A 12, shown in Table 2, for use in the
