Surface channeling of protons and electrons on reflection by a single crystal

  • A. M. Taratin

Computer modeling is used to investigate the reflection of 0.67-MeV protons and 1-MeV electrons by the (110) face of an Au single crystal for angles of divergence ψ < ψcr of the incident beam with the direction 〈110〉 lying in the surface. The angular distributions and reflection coefficients of protons and electrons are compared. Several maxima are found in the angular distributions. In additon to the specular-reflection maximum at θ=ψ there is a maximum at θ > ψ for protons and a maximum at θ < ψ for electrons. The maxima in the angular distributions are attributed to multiple scattering at atomic chains of the crystal surface. An analytic approximation of the reflection coefficient for protons Kcor(ψ) is given. The great contribution to the reflected flux from particles channeled in the surface layer allows it to be used for structural analysis of crystal surfaces.
