Low-energy electron scattering from molecules, biomolecules, and surfaces.


Low-energy electron scattering from molecules, biomolecules, and surfaces.

Ed. by Petr Carsky and Roman Curik.

CRC Press


286 pages




Chemists mostly from the Czech Republic, France, and Quebec review recent developments in the theory and experiments of collisions between electrons and molecules. They skip over formal general scattering theory and experimental setup to focus on matters that are not already described elsewhere. The emphasis is on problems of inelastic electron scattering in such fields as plasma physics, microelectronics, nanolithography, DNA research, atmospheric chemistry, and astrochemistry. Little attention is devoted to gas-phase elastic electron scattering. Among the topics are numerical methods, measuring absolute cross sections of electron scattering by isolated molecules, applying nonlocal resonance theory to diatomic molecules, and vibrational excitations of polyatomic molecules.
