Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

Absolute cross sections for electron-impact excitation of the 2s2S⃗2p2P transition of B2+ measured between 5.4 and 7.0 eV are presented. The results are in good agreement with the R-matrix-with-pseudostates (RMPS) calculation of Marchalant et al. [J. Phys. B 30, L435 (1997)]. Also presented are cross sections for electron-impact single ionization of B2+, including measurements between 25 and 200 eV and calculations using the RMPS and time-dependent close-coupling methods. The measured ionization cross sections are about 14% higher near the peak than previous measurements by Crandall et al. [Phys. Rev. A 34, 1757 (1986)], but agree well with experimental data of Hofmann et al. [Z. Phys. D 16, 113 (1990)] and with the present and other theoretical predictions.
