The Scattering of Electrons by a Single Crystal of Nickel

  title={The Scattering of Electrons by a Single Crystal of Nickel},
  author={C. J. Davisson and Lester H. Germer},
IN a series of experiments now in progress, we are directing a narrow beam of electrons normally against a target cut from a single crystal of nickel, and are measuring the intensity of scattering (number of electrons per unit solid angle with speeds near that of the bombarding electrons) in various directions in front of the target. The experimental arrangement is such that the intensity of scattering can be measured in any latitude from the equator (plane of the target) to within 20° of the… 

An experiment on the particle–wave nature of electrons

A primary electron beam of a transmission electron microscope is scattered into secondary beams by the planes of atoms of a single crystal. These secondary beams are focused to form a diffraction

Electron diffraction for analysing crystal orientation of thin films

1. The goal In this practicum you are expected to: ˆ understand the experimental setup of an electron diffraction camera, ˆ understand the relationship between camera length, lattice vectors, Miller

Structure analysis of solid surfaces

An accident that occurred at Bell Laboratories in 1925 started Clinton Davisson and Lester Germer on an historical series of experiments. While studying the backscattering of slow electrons from a

A compact electron gun for time-resolved electron diffraction.

The design of the electron gun is discussed, which is triggered by a Ti:Sapphire laser, before detailing a series of calibration experiments relating to the electron-beam properties.

Variation of backscatter electron intensity

The authors report experimental data on the dose contribution of backscattered electrons on a silicon substrate. The backscattered electron intensity, i.e., the relative dose contribution from

Transmission Electron Features Revised : Quantum Field Theoretical Considerations

In this work we discuss several aspects of the behaviour of the electrons in the interaction with the material scattered. The interpretation of the physical phenomena is helped through the TEM

The scattering of fast electrons by crystals

Electron diffraction and microscopy are among the most important techniques for studying the structures of solids. This review aims to give a comprehensive introduction to the basic principles of the

Let Us Switch to Electron Diffraction

One of the main advantages of the transmission electron microscope is the easy possibility to switch between the imaging of tiny structures in a thin specimen and the diffraction pattern of the same
