Total electron emission yields for impact of , , , , and ions (impact energy 2–10) on clean highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) have been measured. An enhancement in the electron yield of more than a factor of 2 is found when comparing results for differently oriented HOPG surfaces (orientation of the graphite layers with respect to the surface). By analyzing these data we elucidate the influence of electron transport on kinetic electron emission and derive direction-dependent mean escape depths for low-energy electrons.
