Using a high-resolution electron monochromator, in a crossed beam configuration, we have previously made detailed measurements of cross sections for electron impact scattering from molecules such as N2, CO, NO and O2. These measurements have been for elastic scattering, vibrational excitation and electronic-state excitation. Currently we are looking at electronic states in H2O.
