On the Observation of the Fine Structure Effect in Non-Relativistic (e, 2e) Processes
The spin asymmetry arising in an (e,2e) process using spin-polarized incoming electrons with non-relativistic energies is shown to be dominated by the fine structure effect if a suitable kinematical regime is chosen. Calculations in the distorted wave Born approximation (DWBA) for both the triple differential cross-section and the spin asymmetry are presented for the inner shell ionization of argon. This process would provide an accessible target for existing experimental set-ups.
