  1. Müller, B; Reinhardt, J; Greiner, W; Soff, G, Critical remarks on a scaling law for inner-shell ionization, vol. 311 no. 3 (1983), pp. 151-155 [doi] .

    In superheavy quasimolecules the number of created 1 sσ-vacancies per collisions P1sσ can be evaluated approximately by a simple scaling law. This analytical relation correctly reproduces the measured dependence of P1sσ on the impact parameter, bombarding energy and combined nuclear charge Z=Z1+Z2. It is emphasized, however, that the absolute ionization magnitude is underestimated typically by a factor of four. This discrepancy has been successfully resolved by the inclusion of multi-step excitation processes. It is shown that the derivation of the normalization constant in a scaling law previously reported by Armbruster's group is incorrect in the framework of first order perturbation theory. © 1983 Springer-Verlag.
