Electron Scattering from NO and N2O Below 10 eV



A Zecca, I Lazzizzera, Morris Krauss, C Kuyatt


Total electron scattering cross sections for NO and N2O in the energy range 0-10 eV were obtained from exponential attenuation in a straight-line collision chamber without a confining magnetic field. Good agreement is obtained with previous measurements where available. For NO, cross sections have been obtained for the first time for resonance structure in the energy range 0-2.5 eV. There appear to be small, sharp resonances between the large resonances. For both NO and N2O the cross section is observed to increase rapidly at very low energies. Structure in the cross sections is interpreted in terms of electronic states of NO- and N2O-.
