Resonant charge transfer in alkali-ion alkali-atom collisions is investigated by using the molecular-orbital expansion method incorporating the use of electron translation factors. Molecular wave functions and eigen energies are obtained by the pseudopotential method. Molecular properties, Re, De, and e, obtained in the present calculation are in good accord with other recent theoretical results, as well as spectroscopic measurements. Three-state close-coupling calculations reproduce the positions of the maxima and minima in the oscillatory structure seen experimentally in the resonant-charge-transfer cross sections for the Li2 + and Cs2 + systems. The magnitude of the total cross sections and their velocity dependence are in agreement with experimental measurements. © 1986 The American Physical Society.
