Abstract

PAID refers to ion desorption from solid surfaces initiated by ionization of surface atoms via electron–positron pair annihilation. It occurs even if the kinetic energy of incident positrons is lower than the threshold energies for electron-stimulated desorption (ESD) of ions initiated by electron-impact excitation of surface atoms.
