    Abstract

    Electron-photon coincidence experiments are usually carried out by crossing an electron beam with a beam of atoms emerging from a capillary tube or array. Recently it has been found that the finite dimensions of the interaction region formed by the crossing beams can affect the coherence parameters that are measured in these experiments. The authors have developed models with which these effects and those related to the finite acceptance angles of the detectors can be simulated numerically. This article presents a description of the models and presents results which illustrate the possible magnitude of these effects in electron-rare gas scattering experiments. Other depolarizing effects such as internal atomic interactions are also discussed.
