Abstract The velocity dependence of the total elastic cross section has been measured for the scattering of H2, D2, and He beams by Ne, Ar, Kr, and Xe gases. Velocity-selected beams were attenuated by gas in a scattering chamber. A universal detector, with a magnetic mass separator, was used in conjunction with lock-in techniques. The results are compared with quantum mechanical calculations using a Lennard-Jones-(12.6)-potential, and employing suitable averaging over experimental velocity distributions. Potential parameters are presented. These are in good agreement with those expected from other methods of measurement.
