Energy loss of electrons impinging upon glassy carbon, amorphous carbon, and diamond: Comparison between two different dispersion laws

Maurizio Dapor, Giovanni Garberoglio, Lucia Calliari
In this paper, we compare and discuss calculated inelastic mean free path, stopping power, range, and reflection electron energy loss spectra obtained using two different and popular dispersion laws. We will present and discuss the results we obtained investigating the interaction of electron beams impinging upon three allotropic forms of carbon, i.e. solid glassy carbon, amorphous carbon, and diamond. We will compare numerical results with experimental reflection electron energy loss spectra.
