|Title:||Spin-Resolved Elastic Scattering of Electrons from Sodium|
|Published:||April 01, 1993|
|Abstract:||Angle-resolved ratios of the separate triplet and singlet spin channel cross sections have been measured for elastic scattering of spin-polarized electrons from optically pumped spin-polarized sodium atoms. The triplet-to-singlet ratios axe reported at incident energies of 4.1, 10.0, and 20.0 eV for scattering angles from 20° to 140°. The data demonstrate that spin-exchange scattering plays an important role in the description of electron scattering from sodium at these energies. Comparisons are made with the results of several close-coupling theoretical calculations.|
