Single electron loss cross sections of 3He1+ ions for solid targets of C, Cu, Ge, Sn and Au were measured at 52, 62 and 72 MeV using the growth method. The free electron collision model for single electron atoms has been extended to all targets and the corresponding calculations have been carried out. The results give fairly good agreement with the experimental values. Results are also compared with other current theories.
