Abstract : Experimental electron energy spectra at various angles of emergence or reflection from foils of carbon, aluminum, copper, silver, and gold were measured. Thicknesses used ranged from 0.2 to 0.6 of the electron range. In all cases the incident radiation was a broad, monodirectional, monenergetic electron beam perpendicular to the foil. Beam energies were 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.5, and 1.95 MeV. The spectrometer used as anthracene crystal as the detector. (Author)
