Resumo
We have used the low-energy beam line of the São Paulo Microtron accelerator to study the maximum energy transfer point (tip) of electron–atom bremsstrahlung spectra for C, Al, Te, Ta and Au. Absolute cross sections differential in energy and angle of the emitted photon were measured for various electron kinetic energies between 20 and 100 keV, and photon emission angles of 35◦, 90◦ and 131◦. The bremsstrahlung spectra were collected with three HPGe detectors and their response functions were evaluated analytically. Rutherford backscattering spectrometry allowed us to obtain the thicknesses of the targets with good accuracy. We propose a simple model for the tip region of the bremsstrahlung spectrum emitted at a given angle, whose adjustable parameters are the mean energy of the incident beam and its spread as well as an amplitude. The model was fitted simultaneously to the pulse-height distributions recorded at the three angles, determining the doubly differential cross sections from the corresponding amplitudes. The measured values have uncertainties between 3% and 13%. The agreement of the experimental results with the theoretical partial-wave calculations of Pratt and co-workers depends on the analyzed element and angle but is generally satisfactory. In the case of Al and Au, the uncertainty attributed to the theory is probably overestimated.
