Sabin,,1    * Department of Chemistry, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark Department of Chemistry, Physics, and Pharmacy, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark Quantum Theory Project, Department of Physics, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, USA1 Corresponding author: email address:


A method for calculation of the mean excitation energies of atomic ions is presented, making the calculation of the energy deposition of fast ions to plasmas, warm, dense matter, and complex biological systems possible. Results are reported to all ions of helium, lithium, carbon, neon, aluminum, ...
