Theory of Particle Motion in Straight and Distorted Crystals

  • James A. Ellison
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 165)


In this paper we discuss three aspects of particle channeling, (1) the validity of the continuum model in a bent crystal, (2) a first principles approach to thermal vibration effects and (3) the relation between phase space diffusion and transverse energy diffusion in the context of electron multiple scattering. The discussions in (2) and (3) are done for straight crystals but presumably apply with minor modification to the bent crystal case.
