    Abstract

    Ion backscattering spectra for 1H, 4He, 7Li, 12C, 16O and 28Si ions incident on thin and thick superconductor samples in the energy range 2-28 MeV have been measured. The spectra are analyzed by using a computer program package for ion backscattering data analysis. The general characteristics of the ion beams for the backscattering analysis of high-Tc superconductors both in the Rutherford and non-Rutherford energy regime are discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of using proton and heavy ion beams are compared to those of conventional 4He ion backscattering.
