Relativistic convergent close-coupling method calculation of the spin polarization of electrons scattered elastically from zinc and mercury
MetadataShow full item record
We present spin-asymmetry parameters (Sherman functions) for elastic electron scattering on zinc and mercury atoms calculated using the relativistic convergent close-coupling method for quasi-two-electron atoms above an inert core. The results for mercury are in excellent agreement with experiment across a wide range of energies. Similarly for zinc, we find excellent agreement between theory and experiment for energies below 9.0 eV. However, at 11.0 eV there is a discrepancy between theory and experiment, most likely due to a resonance excitation of a core electron.

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 ...

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 ...
