      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We present in this paper the results of our calculation of five-fold differential cross-section (FDCS) for (e,3e) process on He atom in low momentum transfer and high electron impact energy in shake-off mechanism. The formalism has been developed in Born approximation using plane waves, Byron and Joachain as well as Le Sech and correlated BBK-type wave functions respectively for incident and scattered, bound and ejected electrons. The angular distribution of FDCS of our calculation is presented in various modes of coplanar geometry and comparison is made with the available experimental data. We observe that the present calculation is able to reproduce the trend of the experimental data. However, it differs in magnitude from the experiment. The present theory does not predict four-peak structure insummed mutual angle mode for lower excess ejected electron energies. We also discuss the importance of momentum transfer, post-collision interaction (PCI) and ion participation in the (e,3e) process in constant θ12 mode

      In this communication we present theoretical demonstration of electron dichroism in the relativistic (e, 2e) process for K-shell ionization of atoms in non-coplanar asymmetric geometry. The theoretical formalism has been developed in plane wave Born approximation and in this approximation the triple differential cross-section (TDCS) has been expressed as a product of kinematical factors and atomic structure functions. The longitudinal spin asymmetry in the relativistic (e, 2e) process on K-shell of atoms has been shown to depend on the interference between the transition charge and component of the transition current in the direction perpendicular to the scattering plane. Further, the longitudinal spin asymmetry has been shown to depend on incident electron energy, atomic number of the target, azimuthal angle of the ejected electron and scattered electron angle.

    • Bifurcation and chaos in simple jerk dynamical systems

      In recent years, it is observed that the third-order explicit autonomous differential equation, named as jerk equation, represents an interesting sub-class of dynamical systems that can exhibit many major features of the regular and chaotic motion. In this paper, we investigate the global dynamics of a special family of jerk systems {ie075-01}, whereG(x) is a non-linear function, which are known to exhibit chaotic behaviour at some parameter values. We particularly identify the regions of parameter space with different asymptotic dynamics using some analytical methods as well as extensive Lyapunov spectra calculation in complete parameter space. We also investigate the effect of weakening as well as strengthening of the non-linearity in theG(x) function on the global dynamics of these jerk dynamical systems. As a result, we reach to an important conclusion for these jerk dynamical systems that a certain amount of non-linearity is sufficient for exhibiting chaotic behaviour but increasing the non-linearity does not lead to larger regions of parameter space exhibiting chaos.

    • Quasi-binary incident electron—centre of mass collision in (e, 3e) process on He and He-like ions

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      We present in this communication the results of our first Born calculation in the three-Coulomb (3C) wave approach for the (e, 3e) process on He and He-like ions at an incident electron energy 5599 eV in the coplanar constant θ12 as well as out-of-plane constant φ12 modes. These two geometrical modes are such that the quasi-binary collision between the incident electron and centre of mass of the ejected electrons is in the scattering plane. The theoretical formalism has been developed using plane waves, Le Sech wave function and approximated BBK-type wave function respectively for the incident and scattered, bound and ejected electrons to calculate five-fold differential crosssection (FDCS) of the (e, 3e) process. We emphasize on the similarities and dissimilarities (asymmetries) in the angular profile of the FDCS in two modes as well as the effects of post-collision interaction (between the ejected electrons) and nuclear chargeZ on the angular profile of the FDCS. We observe that with the increment of nuclear charge the two quasi-binary collisions approach towards identical behaviour at larger mutual angles and thus bringing less asymmetry in FDCS for higherZ target.
