Abstract

A discussion of the difficulties in defining the velocity and angle dependence of the probability of electronic events (e.g. ionization) in SIMS, ESD and PSD experiments is given. To extract the essential physics of these processes the effect of different potential surfaces for each ejected species must be taken into account.
