A Monte-Carlo simulation of inelastic scattering process developed by Terrissol has been modified and used to calculate X-Ray depth distributions. The elastic scattering is modelled using the Mott collision cross-section and the Hartree-Fock atomic potential. The validity of this model is discussed in a comparison between the Monte-Carlo results and experimental data describing the energy distribution of backscattered electrons and energy loss data.
