Recently there has been a revival of interest in the process of elastic scattering from positive ions. First direct experimental measurements have demonstrated strong interference structure in the angular distributions, evidence that a purely Coulombic scattering analysis may be insufficient for some applications. We demonstrate the effects of including a realistic approximation to the backscattering in computing the momentum transfer cross sections, for a range of plasma types.
