12.1 Introduction
(why do we need to know this)
Measure properties of nuclei through decay product particles
Measure energy, momentum, mass & charge of particles with
M ∈ [0 (γ) ; few 100 GeV (fission fragment)]
Ekin ∈ [keV (Radioactiviy) ; few GeV (accelerator experiments)]
Q/e ∈ [0 (γ,n); O(100) (fission fragments)]
Need to translate microscopic particle properties into
quantitatively measurable macroscopic signals
Do this by interactions between particles and matter
Which interactions would be useful?
Weak? Too weak at low (nuclear) interaction energies
Strong? Some times useful but often noisy (strong fluctuations, few
scattering events per distance)
EM? Underlies most nuclear and particle physics detectors
Energies released ≤ Ekin(particle) often too small for direct
detection need amplification of signals
21 Jan 2005, Lecture 12 Nuclear Physics Lectures, Dr. Armin Reichold 3
12.1 Introduction
Particle Ranges
a) If smooth energy loss via many steps a)
(i.e. ionisation from light ions)
sharply defined range, useful for
rough energy measurement
b) If few or single event stop particle
(i.e. photoeffect)
exponential decay of particle beam b)
intensity, decay constant can have
useful energy dependence
Sometimes several types of
processes happen (i.e. high energy
electrons)
mixed curves, extrapolated maximum c)
range
21 Jan 2005, Lecture 12 Nuclear Physics Lectures, Dr. Armin Reichold 4
12.1 Introduction
Particles we are interested in
photons
exponential range (at low E often get absorbed in single events)
detect secondary electrons and ions liberated in absorption process.
charged particles
sharper range (continuously loose energy via ionisation)
leave tracks of ionisation in matter measure momentum in B
sometimes radiate photons can be used to identify particle type
neutrons
electrically neutral no firstorder eminteraction devils to detect
react only via strong force (at nuclear energies!)
long exponential range (lots of nuclear scattering events followed by
absorption or decay)
need specific nuclear reactions to convert them into photons and/or
charged particles when captured by a target nucleus
if stopped, measure decay products, electron + proton + anti neutrino
21 Jan 2005, Lecture 12 Nuclear Physics Lectures, Dr. Armin Reichold 5
12.2 Charged particles in matter
(classification of interactions)
If particle or medium emit photons, coherent
with incoming particle radiation process
Bremsstrahlung, Synchrotronradiation: emitted
from particle
Cherenkovradiation, Transitionradiation: emittted
from medium
If not nonradiating process
Ionisation, scattering of nuclei or atoms
21 Jan 2005, Lecture 12 Nuclear Physics Lectures, Dr. Armin Reichold 6
12.2 Charged particles in matter
(non radiating interactions, what to collide with)
What could a charged particle collide with
Atomic electrons (“free”)
large energy loss ΔE≈q2/2me (small me, q=momentum transfer)
small scattering angle
Atomic nuclei
small energy loss (ΔE=q2/2mnucleus)
large scattering angle
Unresolved atoms (predominant at low energies)
medium energy loss (ΔEme(free))
medium scattering angle
atoms get excited and will later emit photons (scintillation)
21 Jan 2005, Lecture 12 Nuclear Physics Lectures, Dr. Armin Reichold 7
12.2 Charged particles in matter
(Ionisation and the BetheBloch Formula)
Deal with collisions with electrons first since
these give biggest energy loss.
Task: compute rate of energy loss per
pathlength, dE/dx due to scattering of a
charged particle from electrons in matter.
Remember a similar but inverse problem?
Scatter electrons of nuclei = Mott scattering
21 Jan 2005, Lecture 12 Nuclear Physics Lectures, Dr. Armin Reichold 8
12.2 Charged particles in matter
(Ionisation and the BetheBloch Formula, Rutherford vs. Mott)
Rutherford Scattering Mott Scattering
α (q=Z’e) ↔ nucleus (q=Ze) e (q=1e) ↔ nucleus (q=Ze)
spin0 ↔ spin0 spin½ ↔ spin0
point ↔ point no unpolarised electrons
formfactors (average over all incoming
nonrelativistic spin orientations)
Mnucl = infinite no point ↔ point no form
recoil factors
first order perturbation relativistic
theory (ZZ’ αemme would need recoil corrections to apply results to
dE/dx of electrons passing through matter
21 Jan 2005, Lecture 12 Nuclear Physics Lectures, Dr. Armin Reichold 10
12.2 Charged particles in matter
(Ionisation and the BetheBloch Formula, transforming Mott)
Change variables from Ω to q2 (q = momentum transfer to
electron) to get to frame independent form
q 2 = P 2 + P ′2 + 2PP ′ cos θ
in elastic scattering of heavy nucleys: P = P ′ = p ⇒

12.2 Charged particles in matter
(Ionisation and the BetheBloch Formula, changing frames for Mott)
Change frame to:
electron stationary, nucleus moving with V
towards electron
p in formula is still momentum of electron moving
with relativeV p =meγV
q2 is frame independent
nonrelativistic this is obvious (do it at home)
relativistic need to define q as 4momentum transfer
Energy transfer to the electron is then defined via:
