Benchmark differential cross sections for electron impact excitation of the n = 2 states in helium at near-ionization-threshold energies
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we present new normalized experimental differential cross sections for electron impact excitation of the n = 2 states in helium. The incident electrons have energies in the range 23.5-35 eV, while the scattered electrons are detected over the angular range 10-130. Corresponding theoretical results from our convergent close-coupling approach are also presented and in general are in very good accord with our measured data. Where possible, a comparison of the present experimental and theoretical results with those from previous measurements is also made. The case for the n = 2 levels in helium constituting a benchmark cross section data set is examined.

Rationale, design and methods for a randomised and controlled trial to investigate whether home access to electronic games decreases children's physical activityStraker, Leon; Abbott, R.; Piek, Jan; Pollock, Clare; Davies, P.; Smith, Anne (2009)Background: Many children are reported to have insufficient physical activity (PA) placing them at greater risk of poor health outcomes. Participating in sedentary activities such as playing electronic games is widely ...
To remove or to replace traditional electronic games? A crossover randomised controlled trial on the impact of removing or replacing home access to electronic games on physical activity and sedentary behaviour in children aged 10-12 years.Straker, Leon; Abbott, R.; Smith, Anne (2013)Objective: To evaluate the impact of (1) the removal of home access to traditional electronic games or (2) their replacement with active input electronic games, on daily physical activity and sedentary behaviour in children ...
Effects of home access to active videogames on child self-esteem, enjoyment of physical activity, and anxiety related to electronic games: results from a randomized controlled trialAbbott, R.; Smith, Anne; Howie, Erin; Pollock, Clare; Straker, Leon (2014)Objective: Active-input videogames could provide a useful conduit for increasing physical activity by improving a child’s self-confidence, physical activity enjoyment, and reducing anxiety. Therefore this study evaluated ...
