    Abstract

    In this paper, an apparatus for measuring electron-scattering cross sections while applying a strong axial magnetic field is described. The first original experiment performed with this setup is the measurement of the total cross sections for pyrimidine (1,3-diazine), which are presented for the incident electron energy range of 8-500 eV. Generally good agreement with earlier theoretical predictions is found after accounting for the angular acceptance (angular resolution for forward scattering) of the apparatus.
