Abstract

The relativistic version of the binary-encounter-Bethe (BEB) model is used to calculate cross sections for K-shell ionization of atoms by electron impact. The BEB model requires only two atomic constants, the binding energy and kinetic energy of the K-electrons. These constants are listed for carbon through antimony. Comparisons to available experimental data on N, 0, Na, Al, Cl, Ca, Cu, Se, and Sb show excellent to good agreements.
