Résumé : It has been evidenced experimentally that, for proton impact on a thick solid target, the ratio Λ of the backward electron yield γB and the electronic stopping power (dE/dx)e is approximately constant over a large energy range (a few keV to several MeV). The macroscopic theoretical models (Sternglass 1957; Schou 1980; ...) assume constancy of this ratio. However, from a microscopic point of view, there is no obvious reason for that. We present in this paper a microscopic calculation (microscopic cross sections and Monte Carlo simulation method for the transport) for proton induced electron emission from aluminium and amorphous carbon. The electron yields and the factors Λ from thick and thin (forward and backward emissions) targets are calculated and compared to experimental results.
