A new formula is presented for the energy and angular distributions of atoms ejected from polycrystalline solids due to keV particle bombardment. The formula predicts that the peak position in the energy distribution decreases with increasing polar angle from the surface normal. It also predicts that the angular distribution is ∼cos θ for low energy particles and is ∼cos2 θ as the energy of the particles increases.
