ICRU - REPORT 31
Average Energy Required to Produce an Ion Pair
|Publication Date:||1 January 1979|
The Report provides, where possible, suggested values for current usage. For gases, it provides an examination of (1) experimental methods, (2) current theories, and (3) gas mixtures, and then includes a compilation of experimental values with emphasis on energy dependence and suggested values. For liquids and solids, references to more extensive discussions elsewhere are given. The report also provides introductory material on the history and use of W and a concluding section on expected trends in future research and new applications.
