Multiple collisions in classical projectilesurface scattering
Abstract
A theoretical model of projectilesurface scattering which includes multiple collisions is developed using classical mechanical expressions for the single scattering of atomiclike particles from a manybody target. Explicit calculations are compared with two examples of recently measured experimental data: (i) 200 eV Na ^{+} ions reflected from Cu(001), and (ii) rare gas atoms in the eV energy range scattering from molten metals. We show that the classical equations for the scattering probability describe the observed intensities quite well when multiple scattering with several target atoms is included.
