Abstract

Modeling of H2/D2 plasmas requires the knowledge of a large number of cross sections involving electron-molecule interactions (electronic excitation, dissociation, and ionization). A lot of information—both experimental and theoretical—has been obtained to this end in these last years. On the experimental side, many cross sections have been obtained from investigations of electron-molecule interactions in crossed-beams experiments1 as well as by deconvolution of transport properties by a Boltzmann analysis of swarm data.2 On the theoretical side, many quantum-mechanical methods including resonant theories, close-coupling methods, distorted-wave approximations with and without exchange processes, and variational methods, have been applied.3
