Abstract

Using time-dependent density-functional theory we calculate from first principles the rate of energy transfer from a moving proton or antiproton to the electrons of an insulating material, LiF. The behavior of the electronic stopping power versus projectile velocity displays an effective threshold velocity of 0:2 a:u: for the proton, consistent with recent experimental observations, and also for the antiproton. The calculated proton/antiproton stopping-power ratio is 2:4 at velocities slightly above the threshold (v 0:4 a:u:), as compared to the experimental value of 2.1. The projectile energy loss mechanism is observed to be extremely local.
