However, because the 3D scan was not obtained using the same detector, and is uncorrected, the overall shape of the excitation curve is different from that described above, especially where it dips in the UV.
If the electrons are particle-like with no wave-like qualities, the screen would show a bell-shaped excitation curve in case (1) and two superimposed bell-shaped curves in case (2).
