Abstract

The angular dependence of electron scattering from the helium atom and the hydrogen molecule for small scattering angles in the 34 - 100 eV impact energy range is explained in terms of the first Born approximation and the polarized Born approximation. The theoretical results compare favorably with the experimental data for both elastic and inelastic scattering. New experimental and theoretical results are presented.
