The non-Rutherford differential cross section of the 1H(4He, 4He)1H reaction utilized in elastic recoil detection (ERD) analysis has been measured in the 0.9-3.4 MeV energy and 16°-41° recoil angle range. The results for the differential recoil cross section vs energy (lab) and recoil angle were fitted on a second-order surface, yielding dσ dω = 89.1E2 - 0.119θ2 - 455.7E + 10.2θ-1.38θE + 693, where E is the energy [MeV], θ the recoil angle [deg] and dσ dω the differential cross section [10-31 m2/sr], all in the laboratory system.
