## Description

This routine, realized for the MATLAB platform, calculates input data regarding electron elasti scattering for the the simulation of Reflection Electron Energy Loss spectrum. The code computes the electron elastic mean free path, differential elastic scattering cross section and cumulative elastic probability distribution for a defined target material and a fixed kinetic energy of the electron beam. The computation is realized by applying the Mott theory. Further details can be found in the READ_ME.txt file.
