KeV channeling effects in the Mott scattering of electrons and positrons
- 20 Downloads
High-energy scattering experiments mandate a point-like charge on the electron. However, the spectroscopic properties of the electron suggest an overall Compton-sized geometry. Adopting the model of a Compton-sized electron or positron that has a equatorial point charge, we use detailed computer calculations of classical Coulomb scattering off atomic nuclei to delineate the boundaries of a narrow energy window, in the KeV range, in which finite-size effects should be observable. Some experimental evidence for these finite-size effects can be found in the published literature.
