Test on electron forward scattering from foils at 13 MeV

Main authors:B. Faddegon, J. Ramos-Méndez University of California San Francisco, US.

Short description: A mono-energetic electron beam of 13 MeV and Gaussian circular spot of 0.1 cm FWHM was normally incident on the exit window, a scattering foil, a monitor chamber, and mylar slabs on either side of a region filled with helium
