    We have measured absolute elastic scattering and vibrational excitation cross sections for electron impact on ethylene. The experimental data have been obtained on two different crossed-beam electron spectrometers and they cover the energy range from 1 to 100 eV and scattering angles between 10° and 130°. Both differential (in angle) and energy-dependent cross sections have been measured. The differential cross sections have also been analysed using a molecular phase shift analysis technique in order to derive the integral elastic and elastic momentum transfer cross sections. Comparison is made with earlier data, where available, and also with a number of recent theoretical calculations.
