We measured the 2E1 decay of the 1s2s 1S0 →1s2 1S0 transition in He-like germanium for 12- to 19-MeV/u Ge31+ +H2 collisions. The resonant population of the 2s2p 1P1 state by transfer excitation was isolated due to its cascading to the 1s2s 1S0 state. The experimental cross sections compare well with calculations using dielectronic recombination rates. The method gives the unique possibility to populate selectively the 1S0 state in heavy He-like ions.

This Letter reports the first measurements of the angular distribution of Auger electrons emitted from the decay of the (1s2s2p2)3D O4+** doubly excited state formed predominantly through resonant transfer and excitation (RTE) in collisions of 13-MeV O5+ projectiles with He. The (1s2s2p2)3D angular distribution is strongly peaked along the beam direction, in agreement with recent calculations of the RTE angle-dependent impulse approximation. Furthermore, interference effects between the RTE and the elastic target direct-ionization channels are observed.


Double Excitation Of He By Fast Ions, J. P. Giese, Michael Schulz, J. K. Swenson, Harald Schone, Malika Benhenni, S. L. Varghese, Charles Randy Vane, Peter F. Dittner, Stephen M. Shafroth, Sheldon Datz Aug 1990

Autoionization of He atoms following double excitation by electrons, protons, CQ+ (Q=4-6), and FQ+ (Q=7-9) ions has been studied. The electron-emission yields from the doubly excited 2s2(1S), 2s2p(1P), and 2p2(1P) states were measured at the reduced projectile energy of 1.5 MeV/nucleon for observation angles between 10°and 60°. The results indicate excitation to the 2s2(1S) and 2p2(1D) states increases as approximately Q3, while excitation to the 2s2p(1P) state varies as approximately Q2, where Q is the ...

An atomic beam of Li was transversely cooled using an intense standing-wave radiation field. A dramatic change in the transverse velocity distribution was observed. Structure in the resulting velocity distribution was found to be due to velocity-tuned multiphoton Doppleron resonances. The force due to seven-photon resonances is clearly resolved in the data. The data are in good agreement with theoretical predictions.

The coupled-channel optical method solves a set of coupled momentum-space integral equations for a finite set of reaction channels. The remaining channels, including the target continuum, are described by the polarization potential operator, which formally depends on the full three-body state vectors for these channels. The distorted-wave optical potential makes the distorted-wave Born approximation for these state vectors, using exact target states. No other approximation is made. Calculations and comparison with experiment are reported for total ionization cross sections and asymmetries, total excitation cross sections, entrance-channel phenomena, and the coupled 1s,2s,2p channels, at a range of energies.

The electron-hydrogen scattering problem has been a nemesis to theoretical atomic physicists due to the fact that even the most sophisticated of theoretical calculations, both perturbative and nonperturbative, do not agree with experiment. The current opinion is that the perturbative approach cannot be used for this problem since recent second-order calculations are not in agreement with the experimental data and higher-order calculations are deemed impractical However, these second-order calculations neglected second-order exchange. We have now added exchange to the second-order calculation and have found that the primary source of disagreement between experiment and theory for intermediate energies is attributable not ...
