In the Introduction of the above paper I made joint reference to four previous publications containing tables of electronic stopping cross sections. However, not all of the reports are similar in nature, a fact that I missed to clarify; the error also escaped attention of the reviewer. The first three cited sets of tables were prepared in analogy to the SRIM library, using a rather limited number of available experimental data for extrapolation based on an approach that I showed to have no justification. This main subject of my paper is not repeated here. The fourth reference, the ICRU Report 73 [1] is completely different in character. The first part comprises a very valuable overview on stopping power theory as well as on methods to measure energy losses. The second part contains electronic stopping cross sections predicted by the binary-collision code PASS developed by Sigmund and Schinner [2]. The early application of the code [1] was limited to projectile numbers Z1 ⩽ 18 (Ar) and reduced energies E/M1 ⩾ 25 keV/u. More recent work suggests that there is room for a wider range of applications of the PASS code [3]. I apologize for the inaccurate wording and I thank Peter Sigmund for bringing the case to my attention. On this occasion I also take the chance to correct a Freudian slip in the list of references of the paper subject to corrigendum. In ref. 12 the names of the authors, which I should have known well, were inverted. The correct citation is given below [4].
