An improved Monte-Carlo simulation technique has been used to investigate positron and electron slowing down in solid matter. Elastic scattering is based on exact cross sections of effective crystalline potentials and inelastic processes are described by Gryzinski's semiempirical expression for each core and valence electron excitation. Calculations with normal and oblique angles of incidence have been made for positrons and electrons impinging on semi-infinite aluminium, copper, tungsten, and gold. Interesting differences have been found between positron and electron penetration and backscattering features.
