Title: Coplanar doubly symmetric (e,2e) process on sodium and potassium

Abstract

We have used the distorted-wave Born approximation method to analyze the recently reported (e,2e) experimental results on sodium and potassium atoms in doubly symmetric geometry at excess energies of 6, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 eV. Post-collision interaction is included through an angle-dependent effective charge model using two different approximations. Our theoretical results are found to qualitatively reproduce the reported experimental data.

  • The triple-differential cross sections for the ionization of helium by fast electrons in the large-angle coplanar symmetric energy-sharing case are studied by using the modified Glauber approximation. Comparison with experimental data indicates that the higher-order terms of the scattering amplitude contribute quite significantly to the cross section. They, however, make the results worse than those of the second-Born approximation.
  • A dynamically screened three-Coulomb-wave model (DS3C) is applied to study the single ionization of sodium by electron impact. Triply differential cross sections (TDCS) are calculated in doubly symmetric geometry at excess energies of 6, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 eV. Comparisons are made among DS3C and the latest experimental data and such theoretical predictions as the three-Coulomb-wave function approach, the distorted-wave Born approximation, and the nonperturbative convergent close-coupling method. The angular distribution and relative magnitude of the present TDCS are found to qualitatively reproduce the reported experimental data. It is shown that dynamically screened effects are importantmore » in the geometries studied here.« less
  • The research described in this product was performed in part in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, a national scientific user facility sponsored by the Department of Energy's Office of Biological and Environmental Research and located at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. A unique p-conjugative interaction pattern was experimentally revealed in the doubly acetylide-bridged binuclear group 4 metallocene complexes, which was involved in C–C coupling/cleavage reactions of acetylides and r-alkynyl migrations. To elucidate how this multicenter bonding network affects the structural and reaction properties of these complexes, density functional theory (DFT) calculations and molecular orbital (MO) analysis were carried out on themore » electronic structure and r-alkynyl migration mechanisms of the doubly acetylide-bridged binuclear Zr complexes, (L2Zr)2(l-C„CH)2 (L = Cp,Cl). The B3LYP calculations suggested that the doubly [r,p] acetylide-bridged complex C2h-(L2Zr)2(l-C„CH)2 was produced by the reaction of L2Zr(C„CH)2 with L2Zr through a C2v- (L2Zr)2(l-C„CH)2 intermediate followed by an isomerization process. In particular, the isomerization of C2h- or C2v-(L2Zr)2(l- C„CH)2 is almost thermoneutral through a low barrier of 15.3–17.0 kcal/mol. The MO Walsh diagram revealed that the two isomers have a very similar six-center-six-electron bonding network. The coplanar p-conjunctive interaction by the electron donating and backdonating interactions between the metal centers and acetylide ligands significantly stabilizes the doubly acetylide-bridged binuclear group 4 metallocene complexes and the isomerization transition state.« less
  • We have measured experimental triple-differential cross sections for electron-impact ionization of the outer shell of argon at incident energies of 115.8 and 215.8 eV. The experiments have been performed in coplanar symmetric geometry with [ital E][sub [ital a]]=[ital E][sub [ital b]]=50 eV and [ital E][sub [ital a]]=[ital E][sub [ital b]]=100 eV. The results are compared with recent distorted-wave Born-approximation calculations.
