Orbital and spin-polarization transfer in ionizing electron-atom collisions
An experiment was performed in which a polarized electron beam ionized an orbitally oriented and/or spin-polarized valence electron of sodium. Measurements of cross section were done for well-resolved vector momenta of the two electrons in the final channel. A tensorial recoupling scheme was developed in order to study the transfer of the orbital orientation and initial spin from the electron-atom system to the final-state correlated electron pair. The cross section was seperated by this...[Show more]
