Electron scattering from molecular hydrogen in a spheroidal convergent close-coupling formalism
MetadataShow full item record
Electron scattering from molecules is a fundamental interaction of matter and is the mechanism behind many chemical reactions. In this work we rework the ab initio Convergent Close-Coupling scattering theory into prolate spheroidal coordinates–a natural system for diatomic molecules–to present total, differential, and ionisation cross sections of electron-H2 collisions.
