Stopping power of Nd, Pm and Sm ions in Cd determined with gamma-ray lineshape analysis
A semi-thick target has been used to measure the stopping power for recoils, produced in heavy ion induced reactions, by gamma-rayline shape analysis.The target thickness has been chosen such that the recoils are partially slowed down in the target and subsequently escape into vacuum. For transitions deexciting long-lived states the Doppler lineshape then depends only on the stopping power. Stopping-power parameters have been determined for Pm, Sm and Nd nuclei in Cd. The results for the electronic stopping power agree within uncertainties with the predictions of the Lindhard, Scharff and Schiøtt theory. The nuclear stopping power can be well described in the framework of the Ziegler, Biersack and Littmark parameterization using the software package Stopping and Range of Ions in Matter (SRIM)2006.
