VARELLA, Márcio T. do N. et al. Applications of the Schwinger Multichannel method with pseudopotentials to electron scattering from polyatomic molecules II: rotational excitation cross sections. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2001, vol.31, n.1, pp. 21-29. ISSN 1678-4448. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332001000100004.
This paper reports results for rotational excitation of H2O and H2S molecules by electron impact. It is also a databasis including tables of previously published rotationally resolved cross sections for CH4, SiH4, GeH4, SnH4, PbH4, NH3, PH3, AsH3, SbH3, CF4, CCl4, SiCl4 SiBr4, and SiI4. Our scattering amplitudes were calculated using the Schwinger multichannel method with norm-conserving pseudopotentials and the rotational resolved cross sections were obtained with the help of the adiabatic nuclei rotation approximation. Our results are in good agreement with other theoretical data and experimental results when available.
