The close-coupling method has been applied to the electron-H/sub 2/ collision to obtain excitation cross sections of the b /sup 3/..sigma../sup +//sub u/, a /sup 3/..sigma../sup +//sub g/, e /sup 3/..sigma../sup +//sub u/, c /sup 3/Pi/sub u/, and B /sup 1/..sigma../sup +//sub u/ states. Cross sections of the triplet states are presented at several incident-electron energies between threshold and 40 eV, and those of the B /sup 1/..sigma../sup +//sub u/ state at 25, 50, 75, and 100 eV… 
Modeling of wave driven molecular (H/sub 2/, N/sub 2/, N/sub 2/-Ar) discharges as atomic sources
Microwave H/sub 2/, N/sub 2/, and N/sub 2/-Ar discharges driven by traveling surface waves are investigated as sources of ground state N(/sup 4/S), H(1s) atoms. The dissociation kinetics is discussed
Scaled Born cross sections for excitations of H2 by electron impact.
The possibility of using these scaling methods, as was done in atoms, to estimate the contribution of inner-shell excitations to the total ionization cross section via the excitation-autoionization mechanism is discussed, though this type of indirect ionization in molecules is not as common as in atoms.

Electronic excitation of H2O by electron impact
Recently we made calculations of differential and integral cross sections for the X1A1 to 3A1(3a1 to 3sa1) transition in H2O in the energy range of 12-30 eV, where the distorted-wave approximation
