Calculation of electron-impact ionization of potassium
MetadataShow full item record
We calculate electron-impact ionization of potassium at a broad range of energies for the case where it is the valence electron that is ejected. The convergent close-coupling method is used to calculate the total and fully differential cross sections. The unusual shape of the total ionization spin asymmetries measured by Baum et al.  is explained. However, agreement with the fully differential cross section measurements of Murray  is somewhat mixed.
