Abstract

We used the Deutsch-Märk (DM) formalism to calculate atomic K-shell electron impact ionization cross sections for the elements Fe, Co, Mn, Ti, Zn, Nb, and Mo. The calculated K-shell ionization cross sections are compared with recently measured K-shell ionization cross sections. Good to satisfactory agreement was found for all atoms with the exception of Ti. Moreover, when compared to other available K-shell ionization cross sections for these atoms, calculated using other theoretical methods and semiempirical formulae, the predictions of the DM formalism achieve a level of agreement with experimental data that is as good or better than the predictions from the other methods.
