Abstract

Experimental and theoretical cross section data for electron impact ionisation of atoms and ions from Copper to Uranium have been assessed. Based on this assessment a recommended cross section has been produced for each species. This has been used to evaluate recommended Maxwellian rate coefficients over a wide range of temperatures. Convenient analytic expressions have been obtained for the recommended cross sections and rate coefficients. The data are presented in both graphical and tabular form. Estimates of the reliability of the recommended data are also given.
