Electron scattering cross sections from anthracene over a broad energy range
We report a computational investigation of electron scattering by anthracene (C14H10) in the gas phase. Integral and differential cross sections have been calculated by employing two distinct ab-initio quantum scattering methods: the symmetry adapted-single centre expansion method (ePOLYSCAT) and a screening corrected form of the independent atom model (IAM-SCAR) at low and high energies, respectively. After a detailed evaluation of the current results, we present a complete set of integral scattering cross sections from 0.00001 to 10,000eV. 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
