Scaling of Plane-Wave Born Cross Sections for Electron-Impact Excitation of Neutral Atoms

Published

Author(s)

Yong Sik Kim

Abstract

Plane-wave Born cross sections for electron-impact excitations of the resonance transitions in Li, Mg, K, Ca, Rb, Sr, Cs, Ba, Hg, and Tl have been scaled by two simple methods described in an earlier paper [Y.-K. Kim, Phys. Rev. A vv, pppp (2001)]. The scaled Born cross sections are in excellent agreement with available experimental and accurate theoretical data, indicating the possibility of rapid and reliable calculation of electron-impact cross sections for strongly dipole-allowed excitations of many neutral atoms.
