Abstract

In this work we have calculated first born triple differential cross sections (TDCS) for ionization of metastable 3S- state hydrogen atoms by electrons. In this study the final state wave function is described by a multiple scattering theory for ionization of hydrogen atoms by electrons. Results show qualitative agreement with other existing theoretical results for ionization of hydrogen atoms from metastable 2S-state and 2P-state. There are no other available results for ionization of hydrogen atoms from metastable 3S-state. The present result offers an extensive scope for experimental verifications in such ionization process.
