Abstract

In the present study, we have investigated scattering of an electron by hydrogen atoms in the presence of the Circularly Polarized (CP) laser field. We have discussed the polarization effect of laser field on hydrogen atom and effect of the resulted polarized potential on differential scattering cross section is studied. We assumed the scattered electrons having kinetic energy 100 eV because it permitted to treat the scattering process in first order Born Approximation. The scattering electron was described by Volkov wave function. We found the differential scattering cross section decreases with the increase in scattering angle, for a fixed value of a laser parameters and kinetic energy of an incident electron. From this study we found that, the differential scattering cross section for the electric field perpendicular to the direction of momentum transfer depends on the elastic scattering amplitude. Finally, we concluded that the differential scattering cross section greatly depends upon the polarization of the laser field.
