Abstract : Beam attenuation measurements were made on free-standing polycrystalline films of various thicknesses at energies between the work function and several electron volts above. The electron-electron collision mean free paths were determined by correction of the attenuation lengths for electron-phonon scattering lengths deduced from the attenuation temperature dependence. Imperfection mean free paths were negligble. Results are discussed.
