Recently experimental fully differential cross sections (FDCS) have been reported for double capture in proton helium collisions which disagree with existing theoretical calculations by two orders of magnitude. We introduce here a theoretical model for charge transfer processes which is fully quantum mechanical and takes all post collision interactions (PCI) between the particles into account exactly. The results of this model are in much better agreement with experimental data.
