Much of our understanding of electron impact ionization is based upon the rich body of classical and semi‐classical work performed over the past 50 years. In particular, these studies have focused on behaviors in the near‐threshold energy regime where excess energies are no more than a few eV. Perhaps the most well‐known result is the “Wannier law” that predicts that the total ionization cross section as a function of excess energy should obey a particular power law . In this paper the results of a fully quantum mechanical calculation based on the method of Exterior Complex Scaling used to study the near‐threshold behavior of electron‐impact ionization of atomic hydrogen.
