AbstractRecent results obtained in our research groups from studies of the interactions of swift, heavy atomic ions with molecular solids are concisely outlined. The focus is on material ejection (sputtering) and surface track formation. The experimental techniques employed include time-of-flight mass spectrometry, energy analysis, collection and analysis of sputtered material, and scanning force microscopy. Characteristics of the sputtering process probed include the sputtering yield, radial and axial velocity distributions, angular distributions, and surface track morphology. Besides reviewing and correlating experimental results, we also emphasize the common quasi-thermal origin of pressure-pulse/hydrodynamic and evaporative spike sputtering models.
