Abstract

A summary is given of the Workshop entitled 'Electron Scattering in Solids: From Fundamental Concepts to Practical Applications' that was held in Debrecen, Hungary on July 4-8, 2004 under the sponsorship of the International Union of Vacuum Science, Technique, and Applications (IUVSTA). This Workshop was held to review the present status and level of understanding of electron-scattering processes in solids, to identify issues of key importance (hot topics) in the light of the most recent scientific results, and to stimulate discussions leading to deeper understanding and new solutions of current problems. This report contains summaries of presentations and discussions in sessions on elastic scattering of electrons by atoms and solids, inelastic scattering of electrons in solids, modeling of electron transport in solids and applications, and software. The principal areas of application include Auger electron spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, elastic-peak electron spectroscopy, reflection electron energy-loss spectroscopy, secondary electron microscopy, electron-probe microanalysis, and the use of coincidence techniques in electron-scattering experiments. A major focus of the Workshop was determination of the inelastic mean free path of electrons for various surface spectroscopies, particularly corrections for surface and core-hole effects.
