Extended Data Fig. 4

The measured (blue circle) and predicted (red diamond) scattering probabilities for all allowed state-pairs are plotted versus their translational energies (T). The two sets of points are offset horizontally by 0.014 cm−1 for clarity. To aid in the identification of systematic deviations, we multiply each scattering probability by a normalized Gaussian function with a 1σ width of 0.25 cm−1, and sum them up to construct broadened distributions as shown by the blue and red curves. These curves are scaled by a factor of 0.2 for convenience.
