The effect of inelastic scattering processes on the angular distribution of positrons spontaneously emitted from metal surfaces is investigated. Angular and energy spectra are calculated for positrons suffering energy loss due to electron-hole excitation in emission from materials with low (aluminum) and high (tungsten) positron work functions.
