Classical phase-space models of the hydrogen molecule and helium are utilized to study shell and subshell electron-capture processes in collisions of fully stripped ions on charge states from 1 to 15 with H2 and He at intermediate impact energies (20200 keV/amu). Autoionization after double electron capture is approximated and is found to be an important channel for high projectile charges. The resulting (n,l) distributions for proton impact of He and H2 as well as total capture cross sections are found to be in very good agreement with experimental data. l distributions for high projectile charges are also analyzed for n levels for which autoionization is negligible. It is found that electrons are captured preferentially to large l values. © 1990 The American Physical Society.
