Title: Low-energy electron-impact dissociative excitation of molecular hydrogen and its isotopologues

Abstract

Here we apply the adiabatic nuclei convergent close-coupling method to electron-impact dissociative excitation of H 2 in the low-energy regime. Differential and integrated cross sections are presented for excitation of the b 3Σ + u state, the primary pathway to dissociation of H 2 at low energies. Agreement with experiment is satisfactory. Results are also presented for the isotopologues D 2, T 2, HD, HT, and DT, which show a pronounced isotope effect near threshold in both the differential and integrated cross sections.
