The main aim of ELIIXS is to provide ELectron Impact Ionization Cross (XSections to the study of astrophysical plasmas, atmospheric science, X-ray lasers, magnetic fusion, radiation physics, semiconductor fabrication, accelerator physics and tumor therapy physics.

The cross-sections are calculated using the Modified Relativistic Binary Encounter Bethe model (MRBEB) model, which combines the Mott cross section with the high-incident energy behavior of the Bethe cross section within the relativistic framework.

The expected accuracy of the computed data varies depending on the element and impact electron energy. In general, for light-medium Z elements and energies up to several keV, the accuracy is typically better than 10%.

On the following page you will be able to choose an element and to define which orbitals you want to know the EIICS, as well the energy range.

This is a dynamic website, evolving as authors add or upgrade data. Please check back again frequently.

The database and the web site are in test run. If you find any mistakes or malfunction, or if you have any suggestions and comments, please contact jps@fct.unl.pt
