Electron scattering at high momentum transfer from methane: Analysis of line shapes

Vos, Maarten


The measurement of the energy distribution of keV electrons backscattered elastically from molecules reveals one or more peaks. These peaks are at nonzero energy loss and have an intrinsic width. The usual interpretation of these measurements is attractively simple and assumes billiard-ball-type collisions between the electron and a specific atom in the molecule, and the scattering atom is assumed to behave as a free particle. The peak position is then related to the mass of the scattering...[Show more]
