We present a study of the low-energy electron emission resulting from the interaction of 5‐100 keV protons colliding with clean and K-covered Al~111! surfaces at grazing incidence. In the whole energy range the spectra show structures that are associated with decay of both bulk and surface plasmons. We discuss the dependence of these structures with K coverage and compare them with those seen in the loss spectrum induced by 500 eV electron bombardment. We observe that the surface mode presents… CONTINUE READING
