Abstract

We have performed ab initio calculations of scattering length, differential, total, and momentum-transfer cross sections for elastic scattering of electrons from open-shell atoms; in particular, the chlorine atom. The polarization of chlorine atoms due to the scattered electrons and the electron correlation effects that are very important in the calculation are taken into account through the configuration-interaction procedure using the multiconfiguration Hartree-Fock method for continuum wave functions. Phase shifts for various partial waves calculated in this approximation have been used to calculate elastic differential, total elastic, and momentum-transfer cross sections for low energies ranging from 0-27.2 eV. The scattering length is calculated with wave functions computed exactly at zero energy. The results are compared with other available theoretical data.
