Abstract

The mechanism of energy dissipation in argon crystals bombarded by 100 and 5OO eV Ar+ has been examined using classical dynamics. The study indicates that very high yields may be expected and that large molecular Ar clusters. Arn, may form via recombination in the near surface region. The results are compared qualitatively to recent matrix-isolation SIMS experiments on a variety of inert-gas solids.
