Differential Cross-Section in the Presence of a Weak Laser Field for Inelastic Scattering
Keywords:inelastic scattering, laser field, scattering angle, differential cross-section
The objective of this work is to study the differential cross- section in the presence of a weak laser field (visible and UV) in the case of inelastic scattering. When the target absorbs the energy, the differential cross section increases, according to the theoretically constructed model. The differential cross-section initially decreases to a minimum and finally takes a maximum value, when the target emits the energy. The energy emission occurs at 5 eV, 10 eV, 13 eV, 16 eV, 20 eV, 25 eV, and 30 eV. In addition, the differential cross-section also increases with the scattering angle.
