Abstract : The intensity of radiation emitted from ion-surface charge-exchange processes can be significantly enhanced if the surface exposed to impinging ions is electronically excited. Alpha particles capturing electrons at a silicon surface are considered as a possible candidate for a short-wavelength laser.
