Electron impact ionization of diatomic molecules
- 84 Downloads
Cross sections for the ionization of N2, CO and O2 diatomic molecules by electron impact are calculated. The applied distorted wave model is based on our previous studies for positron impact, the molecular orbitals being described by Gaussian wavefunctions. Our study emphasizes the importance of electron exchange and of using correct distorted waves for the ejected electron.
