The deposition of energy in a material being traversed by a charged particle results from two processes; electronic excitation of the atoms composing the material and nuclear reactions initiated by the incident particle. The former is the dominating effect and is responsible for the relative linearity in the response of most scintillation or solid state energy-analyzing particle detectors.
