Monte Carlo Simulations

Chapter
Part of the Springer Tracts in Modern Physics book series (STMP, volume 186)

Abstract

The study of the physical quantities that are involved in electron—solid interaction (backscattering coefficient, energy and angular distribution of backscattered electrons, electron penetration in thin solid films, electron implantation profiles in bulk targets, secondary-electron energy distribution, etc.) requires approximations and approaches which are valid only for limited ranges of energy and angle and for selected materials. All the analytical approaches we have proposed involve approximations and have been deduced using semi-empirical models.
