Current Topics in Kinetic Electron Emission From Solids

  • R. A. Baragiola
Part of the Nato ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 271)


This is a report of some of the current problems in heavy-particle-induced electron emission from solids; the choice of topics, one of many possible, represents the particular view of the author. For lack of space, I will not review here the literature on kinetic electron emission (KEE) from solids, but refer the reader to recent review articles [1–6], from which previous papers can be traced. In the following, I will start by describing the difference between potential electron emission (PEE) and KEE. I will then make a brief description of the basic physics in sect.2 and proceed with the discussion of some recent ideas and “hot” topics: estimates of yields and surface effects, sect.3, convoy electrons from foils, sect.4, emission at glancing incidence, sect.5, heavy-ion-induced Auger electron emission, sect.6, thresholds, sect.7, and the emission of high-energy electrons from slow collisions, sect.8. I will end in sect.9 by mentioning some of the other topics of current interest in the field, with references to the literature.
