Secondary electron energy distributions for gold as excited by C K α (277 eV) and Al K α (1487 eV) x rays
1.The number of electrons emitted as photoelectrons and Auger electrons under x‐ray excitation is usually small as compared to that of the secondary electrons. Detection based upon these high‐energy electron emissions would be of greatly reduced sensitivity.

10.We have also measured the secondary electron distributions with the x‐rays transmitting through a beryllium foil backing on which gold was evaporated in various thicknesses in the 100–300‐Å region. Essentially the same distributions were observed for this excitation geometry as for that presented here (Fig. 1).
