    Abstract

    We present new experimental electron energy loss distribution functions for ethylene (C 2 H 4 ) measured with two different apparatus (Liège and Madrid) in different incident electron energy ranges. Theoretical cross sections for electron scattering from C 2 H 4 were calculated using the screening-corrected additivity rule (IAM-SCAR) method. Through a critical comparison of our new data and existing results from other groups, we obtain a self-consistent set of recommended interaction cross section values and energy loss spectra. Finally, electron tracks in C 2 H 4 are simulated with our Low Energy Particle Track Simulation (LEPTS) in order to demonstrate the efficacy of our recommended data.
