The transmission of electrons through an insulating single cylindrically shaped glass capillary of macroscopic dimensions has been investigated for electron energies from 300 to 1000 eV using a high-resolution electrostatic parallel-plate analyzer (spectrometer). The transmitted intensity decreased with increasing sample tilt angle relative to the beam direction, and had two regions: direct, where there is no interaction of the beam with the inner capillary wall, and indirect, where it does interact. From the full-width-at-half-maximum of the angular distributions, the indirect region was found to reveal a further two distinct areas of characteristics versus tilt angle with respect to elasticity/inelasticity of transmitted electrons. Electron transmission for the case of no tilt of the sample was found to be time dependent, due to charge-up of the capillary inner surface. The new results are compared with previous experimental data obtained using a 10x lower resolution spectrometer.
