Pseudopotential molecular-structure calculations have been used to obtain the low-lying interaction energies for NaH+. The wave functions were used to calculate accurate radial and rotational coupling matrix elements. Scattering calculations which include electron translational factors were performed using up to eight coupled channels for laboratory energies 0.1 to 10 keV. Electron capture from ground-state Na 3s yields cross sections in the 10-15-cm2 range of which the dominant products are H 2s and H 2p. Electron capture from excited Na 3p does not show an enhanced cross section relative to capture from the ground state even though the energy gap E(R=) to the dominant electron-capture channel is reduced from 1.74 to 0.36 eV. © 1982 The American Physical Society.
