Title

Triple Differential Cross Sections for the Electron-Impact Ionization of H2 Molecules for Equal and Unequal Outgoing Electron Energies

Abstract

A comprehensive theoretical and experimental investigation of the triple differential cross sections arising from the electron-impact ionization of molecular hydrogen is made, at an incident electron energy of 35.4 eV, for cases where the outgoing electrons have equal and unequal energies, and for a range of experimental geometries. Generally, good agreement is found between two theoretical approaches and experiment, with the best agreement arising for intermediate geometries with large gun angles and for the perpendicular geometry.
