I calculated the coefficient of backscattered electrons from silicon, carbon, aluminum and gold layers of 200 um thickness with Geant4. The calculated backscattered coefficients are:
Backscattering coefficient n= number of scattered primary electrons/number of incident electrons.
Carbon (Z=6): n= 10.81%
Gadolinium (Z=64): n=46.02%
Gold (Z=79)= n=49.11%
Physics model: low energy EM physics (Livermore model)
Layers: 1mm x 1mm x 0.2 mm
Cut= 1 um
Energy of normally incident electrons: Ee=300 keV
I would like to validate my calculation. Could you please suggest some references concerning the calculation of the backscattered electron coefficient? Thanks in advance and I kindly welcome your cooperation.
With kind regards
