Energy distributions of electrons were measured under an observation angle of 42.3 degree by bombarding thin carbon foils with protons of 0.5 to 2.5 MeV and with Neon of 10 MeV energies. Comparison of the experimental results with binary-encounterapproximation calculations, taking into account the electron energy loss in the solid, show that the spectra from proton bombardment can be described by this model.
