  • This work presents a model for the photoemission of electrons from sodium chloride nanoparticles 50-500 nm in size, illuminated by vacuum ultraviolet light with energy ranging from 9.4-10.9 eV. The discrete dipole approximation is used to calculate the electromagnetic field inside the particles, from which the two-dimensional angular distribution of emitted electrons is simulated. The emission is found to favor the particle?s geometrically illuminated side, and this asymmetry is compared to previous measurements performed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. By modeling the nanoparticles as spheres, the Berkeley group is able to semi-quantitatively account for the observed asymmetry. Here however,more » the particles are modeled as cubes, which is closer to their actual shape, and the interaction of an emitted electron with the particle surface is also considered. The end result shows that the emission asymmetry for these low-energy electrons is more sensitive to the particle-surface interaction than to the specific particle shape, i.e., a sphere or cube.« less
  • Electron energy and angular distributions are computed using the advanced adiabatic and the two-center Sturmian theory for the ionization of atomic hydrogen by proton impact at 5 keV. The results are in accord with earlier observations that 50% of the electrons have energies less that 5 eV. The electron energy and angular distributions are also computed using the top of the barrier propagator and previously reported benchmark solutions of the time-dependent Schroedinger equation on a lattice. The two very different theories agree well at 5 keV for electrons moving near the center of charge of the target and projectile nuclei.
  • In this paper we report analytical calculations of the angular distribution of slow ions backscattered from solids by using the multiple collision model. These calculations are of special interest for plasma-wall interactions in fusion reactors.
