Abstract

Five-fold differential cross sections for electron-impact double ionization of the 3s electrons of magnesium have been calculated in the second Born approximation in the impulsive regime. Comparing these results with calculations carried out in the first Born approximation demonstrates the dominant contribution of the second Born term. The second Born calculation shows that the contribution of the two-step 2 (TS2) process becomes large under the condition where sequential binary collisions on the Bethe ridge can occur. The effect of electron correlation in the initial target state is also examined by using a configuration interaction wavefunction.
