Information on used cross sections

At the beginning of each simulation run, the collision cross sections between the selected species are computed and sent to the PICMC worker tasks as tabulated data. Additionally, a postscript file is generated, where each cross section curve is plotted into a graph.

The postscript files can be opened in Linux using the tool gv or okular (KDE desktop environment), under Windows ghostscript and gsview are required to open that file.

A selection of cross section sources is given in the section cross sections.
