Abstract

Fully differential cross sections (FDCS) for proton + helium single capture and transfer-excitation collisions are presented using the Four-Body Transfer-Excitation (4BTE) model. This is a first order perturbative model that allows for any two-particle interaction to be studied. For single capture, the effect of the projectile-nuclear term in the perturbation is examined. It is shown that inclusion of this term results in an unphysical minimum in the FDCS, but is required to correctly predict the magnitude of the experimental results. For transfer-excitation, the role of electron correlation in the target helium atom is studied, and shown to be unimportant in the calculation of the FDCS.
