Three body dynamics in single ionization of atomic hydrogen by 75 keV proton impact
3 body dynamics in single ionization of atomic hydrogen by 75 keV proton impact
"Doubly differential cross sections (DDCS) for single ionization of atomic hydrogen by 75 keV proton impact have been measured as a function of the projectile scattering angle and energy loss. This pure three-body collision system represents a fundamental test case for the study of the reaction dynamics in few-body systems. A comparison between theory and experiment reveals that three-body dynamics is important at all scattering angles, and that an accurate description of the role of the projectile-target nucleus interaction as well as the second order projectile-electron interaction remains a major challenge to theory. However, progress is being made in understanding these higher order interactions and a better understanding of the collision dynamics seems possible"--Abstract, page iii.
