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… Expand
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 diffractionExpand
