  • Transitions are investigated between highly excited states of an atom, accompanied by a change of principal quantum number and caused by a collision between a neutral particle and an atomic residue (core). Such transitions of a Rydberg electron are due to the action exerted on it by inertial forces when the core moves with acceleration, and are also caused by interaction with the dipole moment due to the redistribution of the density of the inner electrons in the course of the particle collision. The state of the inner electrons does not change in the transitions. The mechanism considered is mostmore » effective when the potential of the interaction between the neutral particle and the atomic core of the highly excited atom has a deep well and a large value of the lower vibrational quantum. This situation is realized, for example, in relaxation of Rydberg states of hydrogen H(n) in collisions with helium atoms He(1s/sup 2/). It is shown that the cross sections and rates of the n..-->..n' transitions are determined in this case by the mechanism investigated in the paper, and not by scattering of a weakly bound electron by the neutral particle, as is the case for nl..-->..nl' transitions with change of only the orbital momentum.« less
  • Probabilities of Ml transitions from thermal neutron capture states in even-odd and cdd-odd nuclei with A from 20 to 60 are investigated. In single- particle models such transitions are 1 forbidden. The comparison with El transition probabilities shows that in even-odd nuclei the forbidden Ml transition probabilities do not differ greatly from the probabilities of 1 permitted Ml transitions in lighter nuclei. For odd-odd nuclei some Ml transitions are expressed by the large number of quanta per neutron capture. (tr- auth)
