Abstract : A reevaluation was made of the differential cross section and the transport cross section for particles interacting with a screened Coulomb potential. The results lie roughly between the earlier ones obtained by Firsov and by Lindhard et al. Experimental data by Lasson et al. lead to lower cross sections especially at low energies. This can probably be ascribed to a failure of the model potential which extends to larger interparticle distances than it should. (Author)
