Title: Updated single-electron-capture cross-section scaling rule for A{sup q+}+H{sub 2} collisions

Abstract

An updated high-energy universal scaling rule for single electron capture cross sections is presented for A{sup q+}+H{sub 2} collisions. The current scaling rule is built empirically on experimental data using a wide range of projectile ions and collision energies. The inclusion of such a broad range of values results in a model that more accurately predicts the single capture cross sections for a much wider range of collision systems. The current scaling rule is compared to three similar scaling rules to illustrate how using limited data to develop a universal scaling rule effects a models general predictive power. The effects of all four scaling rules on both experimental and theoretical data are examined.
