Abstract

We present a theoretical study of the dissipative component of the force acting on a highly charged ion moving in front of a solid surface at large distances. The friction force (stopping power) of the surface is analyzed employing both the specular-reflection model and time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT). Contributions from particle-hole and plasmon excitations are discussed. A simple method to include corrections due to the finite width of the plasmon resonance at large wavelength into the TDDFT description of stopping power is suggested.
