Spatially resolved K-Auger emission of hyperthermal highly charged ions at an Al(111) surface

Accepted: 9 October 1999
Within the framework of a scattering model for electrons leaving the solid, the location of emission of Auger electrons ejected by highly charged H-like and He-like ions impinging on Al(111) can be determined when comparing the Auger electron spectra at observation angles and with respect to the surface plane. The distinct modifications of the spectra due to plasmon energy loss structures allow to attribute locations of emission to specific K-Auger processes of H-like and metastable He-like ions and at 1 eV per charge experimental vertical kinetic energy.
