Abstract : First-principles calculations of the absorption coefficients for the free-free transitions in collisions between slow electrons and neutral oxygen atoms have been performed. Results have been obtained for wavelengths in the range of 1 to 30 micrometers and temperatures between 5000 and 50000 K. The one-electron Schroedinger-like equation for the unbound electron includes the Coulomb, exchange, and polarization interactions with the oxygen atom. A theoretical formulation based on the method of polarized orbitals is used to determine the polarization potential. jg p.3
