Bothe(1) has derived an expression for the angular distribution of electrons which are transmitted by matter and which have penetrated sufficient thickness to become completely diffused, and finds fair agreement with experimental work done with β-particles. It becomes of interest(2) to know the angular distribution of electrons emitted backwards from solid surfaces, since it is possible that the two distributions are similar. This question, together with the determination of absolute values of reflection, was studied during an investigation on scattering of high velocity electrons by thin foils.
