Absolute differential cross sections for elastic scattering of electrons from sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) have been measured at 11 incident energies between 2.7 and 75 eV and for scattering angles between 10° and 130°. The magnetic angle-changing device of Read and co-workers has been used to extend these measurements to backward angles (130°-180°) for incident energies below 15 eV. The measurements reveal some substantial differences with several previous determinations and a reasonably good level of agreement with a recent close-coupling calculation.
