"Application of positive-ion energy-loss spectrometry has been extended to include experimental determination of absolute excitation cross sections of ground state helium ions. Helium ion-atom collisions were studied for impact energies ranging between 20-100 keV, in 10 keV intervals. The data were taken with an apparatus resolution between 0.6-o.8 eV FWHM. Cross sections for transitions from ground state to the second and third principal quantum levels of the ion plotted as a function of impact energy were still rapidly increasing at 100 keV. The cross sections at this energy were 1.64(± 0.28) x 10⁻¹⁸cm² for He⁺(l²s1/2) -> He⁺(n = 2) and 3.46(± 0.45) x 10⁻¹⁹cm² for He⁺(l²s1/2) -> He⁺(n = 3)"--Abstract, Page ii.
