Electron-impact dissociative excitation cross sections for singlet states of molecular hydrogen
MetadataShow full item record
© 2018 American Physical Society. We report cross sections for electron-impact dissociative excitation of the B1Su+, C1?u, D1?u, B'1Su+, and E,F1Sg+ singlet states of molecular hydrogen from all vi=0-14 vibrational levels of the ground X1Sg+ state. Calculations are performed using the adiabatic-nuclei convergent close-coupling method formulated in prolate spheroidal coordinates from threshold to 500 eV. Agreement with previous calculations varies with transition and impact energy, ranging from excellent to poor. Agreement with available experiment is generally good.
