Abstract

Low-energy electron scattering from gaseous molecules of ever increasing complexity has already been studied for more than half a century1–3 both through experimental analysis and with the development of several theoretical treatments. Various types of experiments, in fact, have been performed in order to measure the energy and angular dependence of the magnitude of the cross sections involved in the elastic, inelastic, ionizing and dissociative processes induced by collisions of an electron with a molecule. For nearly the same period of time, reasonably successful theories have been proposed to explain the behaviour of these cross sections.2,3
