The Distorted-Wave Born Approach for Calculating Electron-Impact Ionization of Molecules

Figure 4

FDCS for electron-impact ionization of 3σ g orbital of N2. The incident electron energy for (a) was 150 eV, the ejected electron energy was 10 eV, and the projectile scattering angle was 15 . For (b) and (c), the incident electron energy was 75 eV, the scattered and the ejected electron energies were 30 eV, and the scattering angle for one of the electrons was fixed at 10 and 25 as shown in the figure. The Adelaide (circles) and Manchester (triangles) experiment results are compared to M3DW calculations (solid curve). The experimental and theoretical data are normalized to unity at the experimental maximum.
