The semiclassical theory developed by Maslov and Fedoriuk is used to calculate the wave function for two‐dimensional scattering from a Morse potential. The characteristic function S and the density Jacobian J are computed in order to obtain the primitive wave function. The incident part shows distorted plane‐wave behavior and the scattered part shows radially outgoing behavior. A uniform approximation gives a wave function that is well‐behaved near the caustic.
