Effects of Debye shielding in the electron broadening calculations

  • Boleslaw Grabowski
Quantum Mechanics


The impact broadening by charged electron gas is calculated. A proper account of the Debye screening has been taken as also the curvilinearity of the perturber’s trajectories. The results have been given in the form of graphs for a ready comparison with earlier results.
