    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    The equation is formulated and accurately solved for the problem of the transport of photoexcited electrons which undergo scattering before reaching vacuum, with the formation of an electron-hole pair, as well as multiple scattering of elastic type. The analytical expressions obtained permit calculations of the spectral composition of the emitted-electron flux and the quantum yield of photoemission. The limiting expression for the probability that secondary electrons will reach the vacuum which is obtained when the elastic-scattering mechanism is switched off is compared with literature data.
