Computing the exchange interaction in electron scattering from polyatomic molecules Academic Article uri icon


  • The exchange interactions occurring due to the inelastic scattering of electrons from polyatomic targets were computed. A benzene molecule was chosen, and the impinging electrons were scattered singly with the gaseous target molecules in the experimental setup. The modelling of the all-important exchange interactions showed good agreement with existing experiments. The results were applicable to the analysis of elastic angular distributions from polyatomic targets of fairly high complexity and large number of bound electrons. Oxford University Press 2002.
