29 May 2013 Monte Carlo simulation of x-ray photoemission electron microscopic image

A new Monte Carlo method is built to describe the generation and transport processes of photoelectrons excited by incident X-ray. XPEEM images for Ag- and Au-dot array on substrate Si are simulated at different incident conditions by the Monte Carlo method. The trajectories of electrons scattered near dot sides and substrate surface were given to visualize the photoelectron penetrating processes. The simulated XPEEM images in TEY mode are found very close to the experimental observations.
