The 50th anniversary of the appearance of a series of seminal papers by O.B. Firsov is taken as an occasion to have a look at some central aspects of the stopping of slow ions in matter. A brief characterization of Firsov’s model of electronic energy loss is given in comparison with alternative views. The main part of the paper is devoted to central problems such as scaling behavior, Z 1 and Z 2 structure, deviations from velocity proportionality, threshold behavior, metal-insulator and gas-solid differences, and correlation between nuclear and electronic stopping.
