There are about 1,500 records of relevant data at present.
The data are about electron impact ionization of ions with Z less than 30. For
some of them the influence of indirect process are included. More information
can be found from the reference.
For these data each record includes the following parts:
initial degree of ionization,
the notation of energy level for initial and final state,
the fitting formula,
the output form of the physical quantity, data type,
the precision of the data,
method by which the data are obtained,
the ionization energy( in unit of eV),
serial number of the relevant data and reference.
The information of the term and total angular momentum of the state is presented
about the configuration. Sometimes the symbol G is used to represent the ground
state. The output form of the physical quantity includes the list of the
original data (DP), the display of the fit parameter (EV) and display of the
figure of the original data (FIG). The data type includes cross section (XS)(in
the unit of cm2), rate coefficient (RC)(cm3/s). The
method includes theory (Thr), experiment (EX) and recommendation (RE). In the
display of the results the symbol X represents the reduce energy, which is the
ratio of the kinetic energy of the incidence electron to the threshold energy.
Here T represents the temperature of the electrons (in unit of eV). Clicking
