Abstract

Single ionization of helium by 102 eV electron impact has been studied by measuring the momentum vectors of all final-state particles, i.e., two electrons and the He + ion, with an advanced reaction microscope. Fully differential cross sections for asymmetric scattering geometry, which have been normalized to an absolute scale, have been obtained covering a large range of emission angles for the emitted low-energy (E ≤ 15 eV) electron and different scattering angles for the fast electron. Strong electron emission out of the projectile scattering plane is confirmed for electron impact, as was observed before for heavy-ion impact ionization. The data are compared with theoretical predictions from a three-Coulomb wavefunction model, first-order and second-order distorted-wave approaches, as well as a convergent close-coupling calculation.
