The formation of the angular dependences of the inelastically scattered electrons by their quantum transport near the surface of a solid

Physical electronics

Features of the formation of angular dependences of electrons emitted from a disordered solid and experienced inelastic scattering have been considered. Such fine details of the dependences are formed by the processes of the quantum transport of emitted particles. We took the cases of two-particle and multi-particle inelastic processes. Qualitative and quantitative assessments of the relative contributions of the different groups of particles were carried out. The effects related to quantum electron transport were shown to be generally more pronounced in the case of registration of electrons, generated inside the solid in the inelastic scattering of particles of the primary beam. This is true both to the electrons generated by ionization processes and Auger electrons. The obtained results point up the possibility of using this effect in the applied electron spectroscopy.
