Absolute cross section for electron-impact ionization of He(1s2sS3)

Absolute cross section for electron-impact ionization of He(1s2sS3) We present an experimental determination of the electron-impact ionization cross section of the 1s2sS3 state of helium, for which there is a serious long-lasting discrepancy between theory and experiment. A technique for the production of a fast, intense beam of helium in the 1s2sS3 state only has been developed for this purpose, based on photodetachment of the He− anion. The cross section is measured using the animated crossed beam technique. The present results are much lower than the experimental data of Dixon et al. [J. Phys. B 9, 2617 (1976)JPAMA40022-370010.1088/0022-3700/9/15/013] and are in excellent agreement with the calculation of Fursa and Bray [J. Phys. B 36, 1663 (2003)JPAPEH0953-407510.1088/0953-4075/36/8/317]. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review A American Physical Society (APS)

Abstract

We present an experimental determination of the electron-impact ionization cross section of the 1s2sS3 state of helium, for which there is a serious long-lasting discrepancy between theory and experiment.

The cross section is measured using the animated crossed beam technique. The present results are much lower than the experimental data of Dixon et al. [J. Phys.
