The Momentum Transfer Cross Section and Transport Coefficients for Low Energy Electrons in Mercury

McEachran, Robert; Elford, M.T.


The momentum transfer cross section for electrons incident on mercury atoms has been determined from the solution of Dirac-Fock scattering equations which included both static and dynamic multipole polarization potentials as well as full anti-symmetrization to incorporate exchange effects. This cross section is in excellent agreement between 0.2 and 3.0 eV with the cross section derived from the most recent experimental measurements. The discrepancy below 0.2 eV has been investigated using...[Show more]
