Abstract
A new experimental technique to measure stopping forces for swift heavy ions was tested and has been found effective. A commercial PIN photodiode was coated with a patterned stopping medium of gold. This allowed the simultaneous detection of stopped- and reference-ions of C-14 and N-14 in the energy range E = 6.4-10.4 MeV. The stopping forces of these ions in gold have been measured with excellent accuracy. They are up to 10% larger than expected from present tabulations. It would be straightforward to use the same modified PIN diode in other experiments providing direct comparisons for an identical stopping medium.
