Spectra of electrons with energies between 5 and 40 keV reflected from a homogeneous Au surface have been measured and analyzed to give the normalized distribution of energy losses in a single surface and volume excitation, as well as the total probability for excitation of surface plasmons. The resulting single scattering loss distributions compare excellently in (absolute units) with data from previous work taken at lower energies (150-3400 eV). An empirical relationship is derived for the...[Show more]
