Appendix 9  Geometric Factor Study for the Deflected and Unscattered Electrons of HISCALE (Buckley MS Thesis)



For the deflected electrons of HISCALE, the detector is able to distinguish between four separate energy ranges labeled DE1 - DE4.  Table A9-1 lists the current values used for these passbands.


Table A9-1  Deflected electron energy thresholds


Table A9.1


Table A9-2 shows the resulting geometric factors obtained for the passbands of Table A9-1 for the Trial 10 B field.
