Resonant vibrational and rotation–vibration excitation cross sections for electron–CO scattering are calculated in the 0–10 eV energy range for all 81 vibrational states of CO, assuming that the excitation occurs via the 2 shape resonance. Static exchange plus polarization calculations performed using the R-matrix method are used to estimate resonance positions and widths as functions of internuclear separation. The effects of nuclear motion are considered using a local-complex-potential model. Good agreement is obtained with available experimental data on excitation from the vibrational ground state. Excitation rates and cross sections are provided as a function of the initial CO vibrational state for all ground state vibrational levels.
