      Abstract

      Differential cross sections (DCS) for inelastic electron scattering to the n = 2 states in helium
      have been measured at incident energies of 80, 100 and 120 eV. These DCS have been
      determined across the complete angular scattering range (0–180◦) using a magnetic angle
      changer (MAC) with a soft-iron core. The convergent close-coupling (CCC), R-matrix with
      pseudostates (RMPS), and B-spline R-matrix (BSR) methods have been used to calculate these
      DCS. Agreement between the experimental data and the predictions from these highly
      sophisticated theoretical methods is generally good. The remaining discrepancies mainly
      occur at small and large angles for the triplet states 23S and 23P, whereas excellent agreement
      is found between 30◦ and 150◦. The small-angle differences are likely due to contamination of
      the observed experimental signal from the neighbouring 21S and 21P states. The present
      results demonstrate the effective use of a soft-iron core MAC for DCS measurements at
      intermediate energies, extending the operational energy range of such devices by a factor of
      approximately 25.
