A theoretical analysis is performed for electron interactions with the Iodine molecule (I2) for incident energies ranging from 0.1 eV to 20 eV. The calculations were carried out using Quantemol-N package, which uses the UK Molecular R-matrix Codes. Electron interactions with the I2 molecule have been studied with several target models in its equilibrium geometry, and the results are reported for the optimized target model. Scattering calculations are performed to provide resonance parameters along with Dissociative Electron Attachment (DEA) Cross-Sections. In addition, the study also focussed on the estimation of various cross-sections such as elastic, electronic excitation, differential, momentum transfer, ionization and total cross-sections. Many of these cross-sections reported here are for the first time for electron interaction with the iodine molecule to the best of our knowledge.
