Title

Second-Order Distorted-Wave Calculation for Electron-Copper Scattering

Abstract

Second-order distorted-wave Bom results are reported for electron-copper scattering for incident electrons with energy between 10 and 100 eV. The importance of the second-order effects of polarization and absorption is examined. Both differential and integrated cross sections are presented and compared with existing experimental and theoretical results. Good agreement between experiment and theory is found for the integrated cross sections if the theoretical results are adjusted to the known optical oscillator strength. For the differential cross sections, on the other hand, there is almost an order of magnitude difference between theory and experiment for large scattering angles.
