Abstract: We present a combined experimental and theoretical study of the electron elastic differential cross sections of triethyl phosphate molecule (C2H5)3PO4 (TEP). The experimental setup based on a crossed beam technique comprising of an electron gun, a single capillary gas needle and a detection system with a channeltron was used to measure differential cross sections. The absolute scale for the cross sections is obtained by relative-flow method using argon gas as a reference. For the interpretation of the measured data we applied the partial expansion method to calculate the elastic cross sections of TEP. We found excellent agreement between the shapes of measured and calculated data.
