Scaling of Coulomb Born Cross Sections for Electron-Impact Excitation of Singly Charged Ions

Published

Author(s)

Yong Sik Kim

Abstract

A scaling method applied to plane-wave Born cross sections for electron-impact excitation of neutral atoms is modified and applied to Coulomb Born cross sections for excitations of singly charged ions. The modified scaling for singly charged ions is simpler than the scaling for neutral atoms, and the former converts Coulomb Born cross sections into accurate results comparable to the convergent close coupling results as is the case for the scaling for neutral atoms. Comparisons to available theoretical and experimental data on excitations of He+, Mg+, and Zn+ are presented.
