Linear Stopping

Some articles on stopping:

Stopping Power (particle Radiation) - Stopping Power, Bragg Curve and Range
... The stopping power depends on the type and energy of the particle and on the properties of the material it passes ... the density of ionisation along the path is proportional to the stopping power of the material ... 'Stopping power' is treated as a property of the material, while 'energy loss per unit path length' describes what happens to the particle ...

Famous quotes containing the word stopping:

    The sugar maple is remarkable for its clean ankle. The groves of these trees looked like vast forest sheds, their branches stopping short at a uniform height, four or five feet from the ground, like eaves, as if they had been trimmed by art, so that you could look under and through the whole grove with its leafy canopy, as under a tent whose curtain is raised.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
