Secondary ion emission induced by multicharged 18-keV ion bombardment of solid targets. Academic Article uri icon


  • Solid targets of SiO2 CsI, and organic layers of phenylalanine have been bombarded by multicharged Arq+ ions with 1q11. The secondary ion yield has been measured as a function of the incident charge state. No charge-state dependence was observed for most of the atomic and molecular ions, which were identified by time-of-flight mass spectrometry. In contrast, the H+-ion emission is strongly dependent on the incident charge state. 1988 The American Physical Society.
