The (e, 2e) electron momentum spectroscopy (EMS) of atoms and atomic targets has become now the powerful method of investigation in the quantum chemistry and the physics of surfaces. This (e, 2e) EMS is the single ionisation of a target by fast electrons with both outgoing electrons having close energies and angles. Such geometry of the experiment allows to study one electron wave function in the target1,2.
