Nature of problem:Given the complex scattering amplitudes fi->n(theta) for excitation of atomic states |n>, by intermediate to high energy electrons, calculate the state multipoles <T(J'J)KQ+> characterizing the coherence among the magnetic substates and the correlation between the scattered electron and the photon emitted in the decay of the state |n> under the influence of the Q-component of a tensor T of rank K. Also, completely determine the degree of polarization of the emitted radiation by computing the Stokes parameters Pi and density matrices rhoin. | ||

Solution method:At present the program applies the formulae of Fano and Macek [1,2] for the orientation vector O and alignment tensor A , the state Q+- Q+- multipoles of Blum and Kleinpoppen [3] and the Stokes parameters Pi of Andersen and co-workers [4-6], to the complex scattering amplitudes fi->n(theta) generated by the multichannel eikonal theory code. | ||

Restrictions:The program is presently limited to using the semiclassical scattering amplitudes obtained from the companion program in the spin-averaged versions of the formulae for the above physical observables in [1-6]. Future versions of the code will: (a) incorporate the use of the full, spin-dependent formulae for the state multipoles, coherence and correlation parameters and the Stokes parameters, and (b) allow the user to input complex scattering amplitudes obtained from other theories (e.g. R-matrix, distorted-wave). | ||

Running time:less than 30 seconds | ||
