Quantum scattering, a fundamental phenomenon in quantum mechanics, is very important in understanding the interactions between particles at the microscopic level.1,2 Quantum scattering plays a pivotal role in various fields of physics, chemistry, and even beyond, influencing areas such as materials science, quantum computing, and nuclear physics among others.3,4 Theoretical concepts such as the Schrödinger equation, scattering amplitude, and scattering cross-section are highlighted in this, along with their significance in describing particle interactions with potential energy fields.5,6
