Electron ionization cross‐sections for K, L and M shells

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

25 Scopus citations


The total cross‐sections for ionization of K, L and M shells in various atoms have been calculated using first‐order perturbation theory and Hartree–Slater wave functions. For K shells, the hydrogenic wave functions have been used. The systematic changes across the Periodic Table are discussed and the results of a Bethe parametrization are also given.
