Cross-Sections. Basic Aspects

Part of the Springer Tracts in Modern Physics book series (STMP, volume 271)


In the electron microscopies and spectroscopies, electrons penetrate a material experiencing many different scattering processes. For a realistic description of the electron emission, it is necessary to know all the scattering mechanisms involved [1, 2].
