We present calculations of differential, integrated elastic, total momentum transfer cross-sections and spin polarization parameters S for scattering of positron from Eu and Bi atoms in the energy range 2.0 to 500.0 eV using relativistic approach. The target projectile interaction is represented both by real and complex parameter-free optical potentials in the solution of the Dirac equation for the scattered positrons. The theoretical results are obtained from relativistic approach based on solving the Dirac equation using Hartree-Fock and Dirac-Fock wave functions to calculate cross-sections at all the energies considered.
