Electron elastic scattering off endohedral fullerenes A@C60: The initial insight

Document Type


Publication Date



The initial insight into electron elastic scattering off endohedral fullerenes A@C60 is gained in the framework of a theoretical approach where the C60 cage is modelled by a rectangular (in the radial coordinate) potential well, as in many other A@C60 studies. The effect of a noticeably weaker electron elastic scattering off A@C60 compared to that off empty C60 or even the isolated atom A itself, as well as a strong sensitivity of e + A@C60 scattering to the spin of the captured atom A are unravelled, for certain kinds of atoms. Obtained results lay out the initial qualitative basis for identifying interesting measurements and/or more rigorous calculations of e + A@C60 elastic scattering to perform. © 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd.
