Title: Experimental study of the spatial distributions of relativistic electron beams reflected and refracted by a thin foil

Abstract

Photographs of cross sections of an electron beam scattered from thin foils have been obtained on a dosimetric film. The procession of images makes it possible to obtain the spatial distribution of particles both reflected from a foil and passed through it. The spatial distribution of electrons incident on aluminum, copper, and lead foils, as well as on bimetallic foils composed of aluminum and lead layers and of aluminum and copper layers, has been measured. The effect of the material and thickness of the foil, as well as of the angle between the initial beam trajectory and the target plane, on the spatial distribution of electrons has been studied. The effect of the sequence of the metal layers in bimetallic foils on the distribution of beams has been analyzed. A 7.4-MeV microtron has been used as a source of electrons.
