Change of electron injection in irradiated dielectrics caused by surface charging

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The large electric field generated by the charged surface of a dielectric irradiated with a mid-energy, finite-width electron beam is considered as a cause of beam spreading. The quasi-static modeling of interaction between the electron beam and the charged surface is described. The computer simulation of this process shows a focussing effect for the peripheric trajectories along with back scattering for the central part of the beam. A good qualitative agreement with the experimental data is noted.
