Abstract

In this paper, we report total cross sections for electron-induced ionization and excitations from both the excited metastable state H*2(c3u) and the electronic ground state of H2. Total cross sections are reported for incident energies from the ionization threshold to 2000 eV using the 'complex scattering potential - ionization contribution' method and the relative importance of various scattering channels, including super-elastic scattering and ionization, are identified. There appear to be no previous data on the ionization cross sections for the metastable target H*2(c3u). This work has potential applications in the fields of plasma physics and planetary atmospheres.
