Abstract

The differential cross sections for excitation of the n=2 state of atomic hydrogen by the impact of electrons with energies of 54, 100, 136, and 200 eV are calculated in the distorted-wave approximation with exchange included. Cross sections for excitation of the 2s1/2, 2p1/2, and 2p3/2 states are calculated and summed to give the n=2 differential cross sections. The results of this calculation are compared with previous theoretical calculations and with recent absolute experimental data.
