The space-charge effect, due to the instantaneous emission of many electrons after the absorption of a single photons pulse, causes distortion in the, photoelectron energy spectrum. Two calculation methods have been applied to simulate the expansion during a free flight of clouds of mono- and bi-energetic electrons generated by a high energy pulse of light and their results have been compared. The accuracy of a widely used tool, such as SIMION (R), in predicting, the energy distortion caused by the space-charge has been tested and the reliability of its results is verified. Finally we used SIMION (R) to take into account the space-charge effects in the simulation of simple photoemission experiments with a time-of-flight analyzer. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V.
