Main Points of the Electron Scattering Theory



Electron–atom scattering is a process that takes place at natural conditions and in laboratory. The data of this process are required in other domains of physics and technology. They also serve as source of information on atomic structure and properties and on efficiency of different theoretical approaches that are used to describe the process of electron–atom scattering.
