    We present experimental results on low-energy spin-polarized two-electron spectroscopy of W(100) and W(110). A combination of a coincidence technique with the time-of-flight energy analysis was used to record angular and energy distributions of correlated electron pairs excited by spin-polarized low-energy primary electrons from a single crystal of tungsten. These distributions depend strongly on the polarization and the angle of incidence of the incident electron beam. Experimental data are discussed in terms of the symmetry properties, spin-dependent scattering dynamics, and spin-resolved electronic structure of the sample.
