Abstract

A study was performed on the measured angular differential cross section (DCS) for the elastic scattering of electrons from Ar+(3s23p5 2P) at the collision energy of 16eV. The corresponding non-coulomb phase shifts were calculated by solving the Hartree-Fock equations for the incident electrons. The results showed that the DSC is dominated by the Rutherford cross section at low scattering angles.
