Energy Distribution of Correlated Electron Pairs Excited by Low Energy Electrons from W(001) Measured by a Time-Of-Flight (e,2e) Spectrometer
Over the last twenty years the (e,2e) spectroscopy was evolved as a tool for studying the electronic structure of solids1,2,2 and scattering dynamics of fast electrons on solid targets 4,5,6 All these works were done in the transmission mode using high energy incident electrons. The fast electron knocks out a target electron, then scattered and ejected electrons are detected in coincidence. In this geometry the scattering problem is kinematically complete: energy E0 and momentum q o of the incident electron are known and energies E1, E2 and momenta q 1,q 2 of both time correlated electrons are measured.
