A theory of electron impact polarization observed in a direction normal to the direction of incident electron was developed by Percival and Seaton. Chambe and Hénoux modified the expression for Stokes parameterQ so that the polarization in a direction making an angle θ with the direction of impact electron could be calculated. A limitation to the idea of Chambe and Hénoux has been discussed.
