Electron collisions with phenol: Total, integral, differential, and momentum transfer cross sections and the role of multichannel coupling effects on the elastic channel
Abstract
We report theoretical and experimental total cross sections for electron scattering by phenol (C{sub 6}H{sub 5}OH). The experimental data were obtained with an apparatus based in Madrid and the calculated cross sections with two different methodologies, the independent atom method with screening corrected additivity rule (IAMSCAR), and the Schwinger multichannel method with pseudopotentials (SMCPP). The SMCPP method in the N{sub open}channel coupling scheme, at the staticexchangepluspolarization approximation, is employed to calculate the scattering amplitudes at impact energies ranging from 5.0 eV to 50 eV. We discuss the multichannel coupling effects in the calculated cross sections, in particular how the number of excited states included in the openchannel space impacts upon the convergence of the elastic cross sections at higher collision energies. The IAMSCAR approach was also used to obtain the elastic differential cross sections (DCSs) and for correcting the experimental total cross sections for the socalled forward angle scattering effect. We found a very good agreement between our SMCPP theoretical differential, integral, and momentum transfer cross sections and experimental data for benzene (a molecule differing from phenol by replacing a hydrogen atom in benzene with a hydroxyl group). Although some discrepancies were found for lower energies, the agreement between themore »

We report nonempirical quantum mechanical calculations on the total (elastic+absorption), momentum transfer, and differential cross sections for eSiH/sub 4/ collisions at intermediate and high energies (30400 eV). A parameterfree and energydependent sphericalcomplexoptical potential (SCOP) is evaluated for the eSiH/sub 4/ system. The real part of the SCOP consists of three local terms, namely static, exchange, and polarization. The static interaction is generated very accurately from nearHartreeFock onecenter silane wave functions, while the exchange effects are accounted for in the freeelectrongasexchange (FEGE) model. The polarization potential is evaluated ab initio in a parameterfree approximation of Jain and Thompson. The imaginary termmore »

Differential, integral, and momentumtransfer cross sections for elastic electron scattering by neon: 5 to 100 eV
Relative elasticscattering differential cross sections were measured in the 5100eV impact energy and 10/sup 0/145/sup 0/ angular ranges. Normalization of these cross sections was achieved by utilizing accurate total electronscattering cross sections. A phaseshift analysis of the angular distributions in terms of real phase shifts has been carried out. From the differential cross sections we obtained momentumtransfer cross sections and established the value of the critical energy and angle (associated with the lowest value of the differential cross section) as 62.5 + 2.5 eV and 101.7/sup 0/ + 1.5/sup 0/, respectively. The present phase shifts, the critical parameters, and differential,more »
