About the Authors
  • A comprehensive and up-to-date text in the field of electron scattering and ionization, covering fundamentals, experimental background, quantum scattering theories and applications. Electron impact ionization of atoms and molecules in ground/metastable states is discussed comprehensively. The text covers electron scattering phenomena for diatomic and common molecules, polyatomic molecules and radicals including hydro-carbons, fluoro-carbons and other larger molecules together with relevant radical species in detail. Applications of electron impact ionization and excitation in gaseous or plasma and condensed matter is discussed in a separate chapter. Recent advances in the field of electron molecule scattering and ionization for polyatomic molecules is covered extensively.

    • Integrates fundamental concepts and experimental aspects of atomic-molecular ionization
    • Provides a comprehensive discussion of atomic/molecular targets and metastable species
    • Presents data compilation and discussion on more than twenty atoms and over eighty-five small and large molecules
    • Includes a separate chapter highlighting applications of electron scattering

    K. N. Joshipura, Sardar Patel University, Gujarat
    K. N. Joshipura is former Professor and Head, Department of Physics, Sardar Patel University Vallabh Vidyanagar, Gujarat, India. He has taught courses including quantum mechanics, atomic-molecular physics, nuclear physics and mathematical physics at undergraduate and graduate level. He has more than forty years of teaching and research experience and has published more than 130 papers in national and international journals. He has been to University College London (August-October 2001), under the Indo-UK INSA Royal Society London joint award program. He investigated a wide variety of atomic-molecular targets, by developing a method of calculating electron-impact ionization cross section as a dynamic fraction of total scattering cross section.
