Abstract

Calculated Total Cross-Sections (TCS) of elastic electron-atom scattering for He, Ne, Ar, Kr, Xe and Rn are presented. The computed TCS were calculated using the partial wave, Eikonal, Born, and the optical theorem approximation methods with the Lenz-Jensen potential, at electron incident energies between 1to1000 eV.  Results obtained using the partial wave, Eikonal and optical theorem approximation methods are in good agreement with experimental TCS data of Van den Biesen et al (1982).
