Argon cross sections for electron impact processesΒΆ

The cross sections included in this set are based on experimental measurements both by electron beam and optical methods. It is the first set that was able to model the excitation and Townsend coefficients for Ar without any fitting parameter. Further information can be found on the following paper:

Two files are provided: one containing the level description and the second one with the momentum transfer, excitation and ionization cross sections.
