Abstract

related to the electronic stopping power in large electronic band gap insulators. A projectile shooting through the solid is described by a local potential V (r − vt). The flat band limit is assumed for both valence and conduction bands. The energy-transfer rate is calculated by solving the time-dependent quantum mechanics for the timescale of electron excitation near the trajectory, taking the timescale for electronic energy out-diffusion to be much larger. The threshold effect in the low projectile velocity limit is characterized.
