Abstract

Model polarized Born approximation calculations are compared to all the available intermediate energy differential cross section data for elastic scattering by N2 and for electron impact excitation of vibration in N2. The various models predict the angle dependence of the elastic scattering differential cross sections accurately for scattering angles less than 40°-70° at 30 and 83 eV. Vibrational excitation is found to be dominated by the polarization interaction at 33-50 eV.
