Charge Transfer And Excitation In High-energy Ion-atom Collisions
Coincidence measurements of charge transfer and simultaneous projectile electron excitation provide insight into correlated two-electron processes in energetic ion-atom collisions. Projectile excitation and electron capture can occur simultaneously in a collision of a highly charged ion with a target atom; this process is called resonant transfer and excitation (RTE). The intermediate excited state which is thus formed can subsequently decay by photon emission or by Auger-electron emission. Results are shown for RTE in both the K-shell of Ca ions and the L-shell of Nb ions, for simultaneous projectile electron loss and excitation, and for the effect of RTE on electron capture. © 1987.
