Abstract

We report new results of the Stokes parametersP1 toP4 and of the coherence parametersPlin, γa, ρ00 andL for He(31D) excitation by electron impact in the energy range 40 eV to 81.6 eV obtained by the scattered electron-polarized photon coincidence technique. The present results are, where available, in fair agreement with previous measurements of other groups but disagree with the available calculations based on different models.
