We present calculations of differential, integrated elastic, total, momentum transfer cross-sections and spin-polarization parameters S, T and U for scattering of electrons from Eu and Bi atoms in the energy range 2.0 to 500.0 eV using semi-relativistic approach. The target-projectile interaction is represented both by real and complex parameter-free optical potentials in the solution of Dirac equation for the scattered electrons. The results for the differential cross-sections and spin-polarization parameters have been compared with the available calculations and experimental results.
