Multiple elastic scattering of electrons in condensed matter (new version announcement)

Published: 19 May 2022| Version 2 | DOI: 10.17632/cvt9yz9gj8.2


The software MULTI_SCATT for calculations of parameters describing an electron transport in condensed matter in Jablonski (2017) [1] is replaced with a new program MULTI_SCATT_v2 which has the following improvements: (i) extension of electron energies to the range from 50 eV to 20 keV; (ii) detailed analysis of accuracy of elastic scattering cross sections from the implemented formalism; (iii) a new option for calculating the inelastic mean free path for compounds from elastic backscattering probabilities. The energy extension to 20 keV was stimulated by the current interest in applications of hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HAXPES).
