Abstract

Measurements of superelastic scattering of 2eV electrons from oriented Na(3P) atoms have been carried out over the angular range 10 to 120°. Results are presented in terms of Lperp}, the angular momentum transferred perpendicular to the scattering plane. Comparison is made with previous experiments at small angles, and with close-coupling calculations. Good agreement is seen with earlier experimental work, but significant disagreement is seen with theory at angles beyond 40°.
