A method is presented for calculating ion-induced nucleation rates. Whereas classical ion-induced nucleation theory makes the approximation that small ionic clusters are charged droplets whose properties equal their values for the bulk liquid, the method presented gives a nucleation rate in the form of a summation over discrete cluster properties. The summation converges rapidly around the critical cluster size, which is often as small as a few atoms. This approach allows the direct utilizationdoi:10.1116/1.580139 fatcat:cl5hjcw6d5axxoi24u24b5lv4e
