  1. secondary emission

    Secondary emission is a phenomenon in which primary incident particles of sufficient energy, when hitting a surface or passing through a certain medium, induce the emission of secondary particles.

This concept is commonly used in fields such as electronics, nuclear physics, and radio-communication.

    Secondary emission in physics is a phenomenon where primary incident particles of sufficient energy, when hitting a surface or passing through some material, induce the emission of secondary particles. The primary particles are often charged particles like electrons or ions. If the secondary particles are electrons, the effect is termed secondary electron emission. In this case, the number of secondary electrons emitted per incident particle is called secondary emission yield. If the secondary particles are ions, the effect is termed secondary ion emission.
