      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

      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.
