Abstract

Elastic and total (elastic plus absorption) cross-sections for the scattering of positrons by carbon, nitrogen and oxygen atoms and the corresponding diatomic molecules (C-2, CN, CO, N-2, NO and O-2) in the energy range from 100 to 5000 eV are presented. Parameter-free interaction potentials along with the additivity rule are used in the calculations. Good agreement with the experimental data is obtained wherever such comparisons can be made.
