Abstract

The polarization of Lyman-β radiation, produced by electron-impact excitation of atomic hydrogen, has been measured over the extended energy range from near threshold to 1000 eV. Measurements were obtained in a crossed-beams experiment using a silica-reflection linear polarization analyzer in tandem with a vacuum ultraviolet monochromator to isolate the emitted line radiation. Our data are in excellent agreement with convergent close-coupling calculations over the entire energy range. The data are broadly similar to the earlier measurements of H Lyman-α polarization reported from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
