# Scaled electron ionization cross sections in the Born approximation for atoms with 55< or =Z< or =102

@article{Mcguire1979ScaledEI, title={Scaled electron ionization cross sections in the Born approximation for atoms with 55< or =Z< or =102}, author={E. J. Mcguire}, journal={Physical Review A}, year={1979}, volume={20}, pages={445-456} }

Using the generalized oscillator-strength formulation of the Born approximation, the author calculated electron ionization cross sections for all significant subshells of every fourth atom with 58< or =Z< or =102, and for Hg. The calculations used approximate Herman-Skillman wave functions and eigenvalues. The cross sections were put in scaled form, depending essentially on ionization energy only. The scaled cross sections were used with experimental energies to calculate the cross sections for… Expand
