Low-Loss and No-Loss Spectra and Images
The term ‘energy loss’ implies that we are interested only in inelastic interactions, but the spectrum will also contain electrons which have not lost any discernible energy, so we need to consider elastic scattering as well. In this chapter, we’ll focus on the low-energy portion of the EEL spectrum which comprises.
