Abstract

We have exposed a detector, similar to the one used on the HEAO Heavy Nuclei Experiment {Binns, et al., 1981) to beams of _(26)Fe, _(57)La, _(61)Ho and _(79)Au at the LBL Bevalac. We will report on the deviations from z2 scaling for the signals in the ion chambers and the Cherenkov counters as a function of energy and Z. These deviations are definitely small and imply an error of less than one charge unit in the charge determinations used in the Heavy Nuclei Experiment (Binns, et al., 1989).
