Abstract : The characteristic energy losses which are observed when a thin film of metal is bombarded by an energetic beam of electrons were investigated as a function of temperature from 4.2 to 300 K. In this report the experimental results for aluminum, magnesium and tin are presented. The change in plasmon energy for magnesium and tin is almost linear, but aluminum shows a surprisingly large increase at temperatures below 77 K indicating the probability that some effect other than the change in free electron density is affecting the energy loss values.
