The ionization energy or ionization potential is the energy necessary to remove an electron from the neutral atom. It is a minimum for the alkali metals which have a single electron outside a closed ...
Chemistry really but shows how electron shells are filled up in atoms
As one of the leptons, the electron is viewed as one of the fundamental particles.
Description of radioactive process of electron capture with good links to other sites.
Many features of the dynamics of free electron lasers can be understood using a simple pendulum model. This site uses JAVA applets to demonstrate this.
An introduction to electron spin with links of to other topics such as fine structure.
A well described page explaining electron interference. There is a very good multimedia example of this effect - showing the interference pattern produced by firing electrons through two slits.
A convenient energy unit, particularly for atomic and nuclear processes, is the energy given to an electron by accelerating it through 1 volt of electric potential difference.
An illustrated history of J.J.Thomson's discovery of the electron. There is a brief story of Thomson's life, some further developments and links to other web sites and relevant reading.
Ernst Ruska (1906 - 1988) received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1986 for his fundamental work in electron optics, and for the design of the first electron microscope.
