Abstract

The controversy about whether or not an inelastically scattered electron wave can still interfere with a reference wave is solved by treating the whole problem rigorously and describing electron, source and object in one Hamiltonian. It turns out that, in principle, interference can occur between an inelastically scattered wave and a reference wave from the incident beam spectrum provided the energy difference is smaller than about 10-15eV. However, it is argued that the density of states in source object and electron wave is much too small to make this effect observable. Copyright (C) 2000.
