On the determination of the mean excitation energy of water

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

John R. Sabin, Jens Oddershede, Stephan P. A. Sauer

Water is a ubiquitous substance in nature, and thus the mean excitation energy of water is an important quantity for understanding and prediction of the details of many fast ion/molecule collision processes such as those involved in external beam radiotherapy of tumors. There are several methods for determining numerical values for a mean excitation energy for water, both theoretical and experimental. Here the factors affecting the determination of the value of the mean excitation energy of water, especially from experiment, are discussed.
