Abstract :

The first-order Born approximation, upon which Bethe's stopping power formula is based, is inadequate to the task of accurately describing the energy-loss distribution of highly charged particles. It was pointed the importance of the Mott higher-order-correction (MC) to the relativistic version of this formula in various works. However, most of the known expressions are inconvenient for the practical calculations of MCs. In this regard, obtaining convenient and accurate representations for the MCs become significant. In previous work, we have obtained an exact analytical expression for the Mott correction to the Bethe-Bloch formula in the form of a rather fast converging series of the quantities bilinear in the Mott partial amplitudes, which can be quite simply calculated. The aim of the present work is to obtain similar expressions for the MCs to the first-order Born central moments μ_(n,B) (n = 2,3,4) and normalized central moments ρ_(k,B) (k=3,4) of the energy-loss distribution (ELD) for heavy ions and estimate them in a wide range of the relative ion velocity β. Based on our previous result, we have obtained in this work analytical expressions for the higher moments that reduce their calculations to the summation of rapidly convergent infinite series with a specified accuracy. As a result, we managed to estimate the most common ELD characteristics in the Mott and Born approximations and show that whereas the relative corrections to the moments ρ_(k,B) can reach several tens of percent over the range 0.05?β?0.95, these corrections achieve several hundred percent for μ_(n,B) over β range considered (Figure 1). The obtained results mean the dominant contribution of close collisions to the higher moments of ELD. They also mean that ELDs which are calculated taking into account MCs are always less asymmetric and closer to Gaussian than those in the Born approximation. Recent Publications: 1.
