Glossary terms about Elastic scattering

Elastic scattering
Electron scattering in which the electron changes direction through interaction with the sample but looses negligible energy. This process leads to spreading of the electron beam in the sample. See backscattered electrons.

Electron-matter interactions
Electron-matter interactions can be divided into two classes: elastic scattering – the electron trajectory within the specimen changes, but its kinetic energy and velocity remains essentially constant.
