Adiabatic polarization potentials for electron scattering by N2 and CO

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Interaction potentials including effects of target charge polarization by the incident electron are calculated for electron scattering by N2 and CO. The method used is molecular orbital theory with intermediate-neglect- of-differential overlap (a modified INDO/1s calculation). The calculations provide new insight into the shape and anisotropy of the potential.
