Zusammenfassung: 
We have studied the angular straggling of a particle beam scattered off a clean metal surface under glancing angles of incidence. We show analytically that inelastic resonant scattering of `'hot-electrons'' lying energetically at or above the Fermi level is a possible mechanism to explain the large angular straggling observed in low energy (a few keV) grazing particle surface scattering, and we clarify what physical parameters are responsible for this mechanism.
