Theoretical description of electron transport in solids is important in radiation physics, electron lithography, electron-probe microanalysis, analytical electron microscopy, and surface analysis by Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). In these and other applications, the trajectories of electrons in a solid are generally modified by single and multiple elastic-scattering events. An evaluation of the effects of elastic scattering on the process of interest requires knowledge of the cross sections for electron elastic scattering by the constituent atoms of the particular solid. Although calculated and measured electron elastic-scattering cross sections are available in the literature for selected elements and a limited number of electron energies, this information is incomplete and insufficient for general use...
