In this work we compare characteristics of Auger neutralization of [Formula: see text] ions at noble metal and free-electron metal surfaces. For noble metals, we find that the position of the energy level of He with respect to the Fermi level has a non-negligible influence on the values of the calculated Auger rates through the evaluation of the surface… CONTINUE READING
