Conference paper


Electron impact studies, both theoretical and experimental, have played an important part in our understanding in the field of atomic physics. The electron provides a useful probe into the region of the electron cloud surrounding the atom. Amongst the most notable examples in electron collision studies which can be thought of are the Franck-Hertz experiment proving the quantised nature of energy loss in collisions between electrons and atoms, the Ramsauer-Townsend effect in the structure of scattering cross-sections and electron spin effects in Mott scattering.
