Abstract

Electron impact double ionization cross-sections of Sc+ions have been calculated in the binary encounter approximation (BEA). Accurate expression of σΔE(cross-section for energy transfer ΔE) and Hartree-Fock velocity distributions for the target electrons have been used throughout the calculations. Direct double ionization from ejection of 3d and 4s electrons has been investigated in the modified double binary encounter model incorporating the focusing action of the target ion on the incident electron. The identification of the 3p shell whose ionization provides a major contribution to double ionization through ionization-autoionization is an interesting aspect of the present investigation. The theoretical results show satisfactory agreement with the experimental observations.
