total secondary electron emission coefficient


ratio of the number of all emitted electrons to the number of incident electrons of defined incident kinetic energy and angle, specific of a material surface under electron irradiation under high vacuum conditions


  • NOTE 1 The total secondary electron coefficient is the sum of the true secondary electron coefficient and the backscattered electron coefficient.
  • NOTE 2 The term "secondary electron emission yield" is synonymous.
