The scattering of low-energy electrons and positrons from gaseous C[sub 60] molecules provides much interesting information on the behavior of this molecule and on the relationship between its structural features and its response to slow electrons and positrons. Our model for these processes has no adjustable parameters and includes both interaction potentials to describe polarization effects and a non-local exchange potential in the case of electron scattering. These theoretical investigations have allowed us to give a microscopic interpretation of observed experimental behavior and has allowed us to propose additional experiments which should exhibit features in both electron and positron low-energy collisions which are unique to the C[sub 60] molecule. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
