Rutherford backscattering spectrometry is an analytical technique used in materials science. Sometimes referred to as high-energy ion scattering spectrometry, RBS is used to determine the structure and composition of materials by measuring the backscattering of a beam of high energy ions impinging on a sample. Rutherford backscattering spectrometry is named after Lord Ernest Rutherford, a physicist sometimes referred to as the father of nuclear physics. Rutherford supervised a series of experiments carried out by Hans Geiger and Ernest Marsden between 1909 and 1914 studying the scattering of alpha particles through metal foils. While attempting to eliminate "stray particles" they believed to be caused by an imperfection in their alpha source, Rutherford suggested that Marsden attempt to measure backscattering from a gold foil more
