Differential inelastic cross sections for electron-mercury atom collisions
The differential and total inelastic cross sections for electron-mercury atom collisions were calculated using the Born approximation together with the Ochkur approximation for the transitions (^1S_0 -> ^3P_0), (^1S_0 -> ^3P_2), (^3P_0 -> ^1S_0), and (^3P_2 -> ^1S_0) at one eV energy intervals from 1 eV - 33 eV above threshold. A reprint of work previously published containing values for polarizabilities of all the atoms is contained in Appendix B.
