Welcome to MarcShop - a Virtual Laboratory for Ion Scattering to ProbeAtomic, Nuclear and Microscopic Structures.

We aim for MarcShop to help you learn about some of the physical modelsfor the scattering of charged particles from matter.

The scattering of charged particles is a useful way of studyingmicroscopic structures and can be thought of an extension of the normalway we look at specimens with light:

specimen(hv, hv)specimen
specimen(particle in, particle out)specimen'

where the particle out may not be the same as the particle in.
