Title

Dynamical (E, 2e) Studies of Formic Acid

Abstract

We present triply differential cross sections for the electron impact ionization of the outer valence orbitals of formic acid (CHOOH) by 100 eV and 250 eV incident electrons. The experiments were performed under asymmetric kinematics, in which the outgoing ejected electron had an energy of 10 eV, over a range of momentum transfers. The experimental results are compared with theoretical calculations carried out using the sophisticated M3DW model, both with and without correlation-polarization-exchange terms included.
