Title: Electron mass stopping power in H 2

Abstract

Calculations of electron mass stopping power (SP) of electrons in $${\mathrm{H}}_{2}$$ have been performed here using the convergent close-coupling method for incident electron energies up to 2000 eV. Convergence of the calculated SP has been established by increasing the size of the close-coupling expansion from 9 to 491 states. Good agreement was found with the SP measurements of Munoz et al. [Chem. Phys. Lett. 433, 253 (2007)].
