Proton recoil effects due to virtual phonton exchange in the binary encounter approximation

MetadataShow full item record
The Binary Encounter Approximation cross-section for inner-shell ionization of atoms by protons is corrected for proton recoil, an effect due to the exchange of virtual photons in proton — electron scattering. The correction is found to be important only at very low projectile energies in high—Z targets.
