Both electron stimulated desorption (ESD) and inelastic electron scattering (IES) are enhanced strongly by anion resonant states. Occasionally, peak features observed in ESD and IES arise from the same anion resonant states. IED, however, unlike ESD, provides information on the symmetry of the anion resonant states through the angular distributions of the inelastically scattered electrons. Such electron angular distributions from O2 on graphite have been studied extensively by Palmer and co-workers. Their results have been published in more than eight papers over the past four years [1–8] and summarized in two recent review articles [7,8].
