Theory of charged fractions for low energy protons

Academic Article


  • We study theoretically the negative charged fractions for hydrogen in the energy range of a few keV. Our purpose is to derive the qualitative feature of the negative charged fractions in the dependence on the target materials parameter, e.g. the work function, the Fermi energy, the local density of states, etc. We show that the most important parameter is the energy difference between the affinity level and the Fermi level. © 1984.
