Correlation Experiments with Secondary Electrons

  • Giovanni Stefani
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 196)


In the final state of an electron induced ionisation event there are at least three unbound charged particles interacting via long range Coulomb forces. Due to the nature of the Coulomb field, they are never independent, not even when the break-up reaction is over and their energies may already be in the continuum. This results in the presence of final state interactions (correlations) whose effect can be of such an extent to determinate a partitioning of energy and angular momentum among the final products, which is noticeably different from the one predicted on the basis of models that don’t account for correlations, (i.e. the first order interaction models).
