Ion Beam Analysis: Fundamentals and Applications explains the basic characteristics of ion beams as applied to the analysis of materials, as well as ion beam analysis (IBA) of art/archaeological objects. It focuses on the fundamentals and applications of ion beam methods of materials characterization.
The book explains how ions interact with solids and describes what information can be gained. It starts by covering the fundamentals of ion beam analysis, including kinematics, ion stopping, Rutherford backscattering, channeling, elastic recoil detection, particle induced x-ray emission, and nuclear reaction analysis. The second part turns to applications, looking at the broad range of potential uses in thin film reactions, ion implantation, nuclear energy, biology, and art/archaeology.
Examines classical collision theoryDetails the fundamentals of five specific ion beam analysis techniquesIllustrates specific applications, including biomedicine and thin film analysisProvides examples of ion beam analysis in traditional and emerging research fields
Supplying readers with the means to understand the benefits and limitations of IBA, the book offers practical information that users can immediately apply to their own work. It covers the broad range of current and emerging applications in materials science, physics, art, archaeology, and biology. It also includes a chapter on computer applications of IBA.

This book will be immensely useful both as a reference and textbook, as it presents the fundamentals, all primary ion beam analysis techniques, and many specific applications together in one place. It should prove to be immensely useful as a reference or textbook for any scientist or student of the field.

This is a must-have ion beam analysis textbook or reference handbook ... . It covers all aspects of ion beam fundamentals and important applications with tables, charts, and excellent examples. ... homework problems are also given at the end of each chapter ... this book could be used as a textbook for a graduate course on ion beam science and technology.
-Wei-Kan Chu, Research Director and Distinguished University Professor of Physics, The University of Houston
The approach the authors have taken, with a good balance between fundamentals and applications, will make their book especially useful for students entering graduate studies or starting senior undergraduate projects.
-J.L. (Iain) Campbell, Professor Emeritus, Department of Physics, University of Guelph
An indispensable book for everyone, student or expert, dealing with ion beam analysis ... Highly recommended.
-Andrzej Turos, Professor and Head of Department of Microstructural Research, University of Warsaw
This is a must-have book for those embarking on the use of ion beams for materials analysis. It brings together all the essential knowledge in a convenient, compact, and up-to-date way.
-S.T. Picraux, Chief Scientist, Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies, Los Alamos National Laboratory
... a coherent presentation of the basics of nuclear reactions and scattering along with a comprehensive presentation on how MeV ion beams are used for analysis. Each chapter ends with a set of problems and useful references. This book will be useful as a text for those teaching a course on ion-solid interactions and as a reference for practitioners.
-William A. Lanford, Professor of Physics, University at Albany
The book Ion Beam Analysis: Fundamentals and Applications will be an important addition to the libraries of scientists and engineers who are already practitioners of these important techniques, but its main utility will be for students, in a wide spectrum of fields, whose research could potentially benefit from IBA or those who are just starting to utilize IBA.
