Abstract

We study spin-dependent scattering and transport of low energy electrons (≤ 500 eV) through metals employing a classical transport theory within which electron trajectories are simulated as a sequence of stochastic scattering events. Elastic as well as spin-dependent inelastic processes are included in our model simulating the complete secondary electron cascade. We apply our model to spin-polarization measurements of electrons emitted from magnetized Fe after impact of unpolarized primary electrons. We find good agreement with experimental data.
