Estimated energy loss (Equation 8) for a photoemitted electron as a function of its velocity
N = 20 υ = 1 a.u. υ = 1.5 a.u. υ = 2.5 a.u.
Eloss, a.u. Without hole 0.60 0.44 0.22
With hole 0.37 0.30 0.16
ΔEloss , a.u. 0.23 0.14 0.06

The electron is assumed to follow a trajectory with constant velocity. The difference in energy loss ΔEloss for the case of absence and presence of a hole in the center of the cluster is also given.
