Scanning Microscopy


This article updates the paper "Secondary Electron Emission from Solids by Electron and Proton Bombardment" published in Scanning Microscopy Vol. 2, pages 607-632 (1988). The recent development in secondary electron emission from solids by electron or proton bombardment is reviewed. The similarities between electron- and ion-induced emission are emphasized. Recent theoretical results for the emission from beryllium agree well with existing experimental results. Results from new directions are included in the discussion.
