Three-Dimensional Imaging of Atomic Break-Up Processes
We have measured complete three-dimensional images of fully differential cross sections for single ionization of He by ion impact for a broad range of perturbations (projectile charge to velocity ratio). Qualitative discrepancies to a state-of-the-art calculation are found. Our results demonstrate that even for very small perturbations single ionization is not nearly as well understood as was assumed previously.
