- The key to ion beams' polarizability
Polarizability determines the force with which an inhomogeneous external electric field acts on the ions of an ion beam. However, it can be quite tricky to obtain accurate values for this force. Now chemists have devised formulas providing the polarizability of atomic ions as a function of their total charge number.
