Abstract

The  influence  of  nuclear  multiple  scattering  on  axially  channeled protons with an energy of 7 TeV through a bent <100> Si crystal, is presented in this paper. The aims of the investigation are the processes correlated to the axial channeling, such as dechanneling, angular distributions and energy loss distribution. The data for these processes are generated via the numerical solution of the proton equations of motion in the transverse plane and the computer simulation method. In the simulations, the crystal thickness is varied from 1 to 5 mm while the bending angle is varied from 0 to 20 µrad. The increasing of the transverse energy of axially channeled protons is due to its multiple scattering by atomic strings and the bending dechanneling mechanism. The analysis of the generated data shows that in the cases we are considering, the dechanneling function, the energy loss spectra, and the angular distributions do not undergo to any significant changes when the effect of nuclear multiple scattering is included in the ion-atom interactions.

Key words: relativistic channeling, bent crystal, energy loss distribution, dechanneling function
