    Ion beam formation at low energy (∼1 kev or so) is more difficult to accomplish than at high energy because of beam blowup by space-charge forces in the uncompensated region within the extractor, an effect which is yet more pronounced for heavy ions and for high beam current density. For...

    In this paper, we show with the help of two-dimensional numerical simulations that the specific power deposition by a heavy ion beam in matter may significantly decrease due to hydrodynamic expansion of the target during irradiation. It has also been shown that in order to maximize the specific...
