Abstract

The analysis of absolute and partial differential information for single and multiple ionization of krypton for 750 eV positron and electron impact was discussed. The analyzed data show that the relative amount of multiple ionization increases with energy loss for both projectiles. It was found that the single and multiple ionization in the outermost N shell of krypton atom dominated. The results show that at higher-energy losses, single ionization dominates with a branching ratio of ∼60%, along with double and triple ionization with branching ratios approximately 20% and 15%.
