Title: Closed-form expressions for state-to-state charge-transfer differential cross sections in a modified Faddeev three-body approach

Abstract

The second-order Faddeev-Watson-Lovelace approximation in a modified form is applied to charge transfer from hydrogenlike target atoms by a fully stripped energetic projectile ion. The state-to-state, nlm{yields}n{sup '}l{sup '}m{sup '}, partial transition amplitudes are calculated analytically. The method is specifically applied to the collision of protons with hydrogen atoms, where differential cross sections of different transitions are calculated for incident energies of 2.8 and 5.0 MeV. It is shown that the Thomas peak is present in all transition cross sections. The partial cross sections are then summed and compared with the available forward-angle experimental data, showing good agreement.

  • K-shell charge-transfer cross sections are calculated for swift fully stripped ions impinging on target atoms in a post-interaction distorted-wave formalism. The projectile interaction with the residual target atom is part of the unperturbed Hamiltonian and is approximated by its asymptotic form while the consequent projectile distortion is approximated by an eikonal wave function. The results are compared to experiment and to other theoretical calculations and are used to shed light on some aspects of the three-body Coulombic rearrangement process and in particular on the significance of asymptotic properties of interactions and wave functions on the results of simple approximation schemes.more » (AIP)« less
  • Vibrational state-to-state charge transfer cross sections have been obtained for H/sup +/+O/sub 2/ collisions at E-italic/sub cm/ = 23.0 eV in a differential scattering experiment by measuring the product H atom energy distribution in the range 0/sup 0/< or =theta< or =11/sup 0/. The results show a strong dependence of the distribution of vibrational transition probabilities P-italic(O/sub 2/, v-italic = 0..-->..O/sup +//sub 2/, v-italic'') on the scattering angle. At very low angles (thetaapprox. <2/sup 0/) we find a strongly enhanced contribution of the more resonant states v-italic'' = 3--6 compared to a Franck--Condon distribution, which is peaked at v-italic'' =more » 1 and, on the other hand, at moderate angles of about theta = 4/sup 0/ comes very close to the measured spectra. At even larger angles increasing deviations from the Franck--Condon distribution towards larger excitation of higher vibrational states are observed. An explanation of these and the related results for the nonexchange collisions leading to neutral O/sub 2/ vibrational excitation is given in terms of the underlying potential energy surfaces.« less
  • Elastic and charge-transfer scattering of protons by Kr and Xe targets has been investigated in a crossed-beam experiment at collision energies E/sub c.m./ = 30.6 and 51.7 eV. The charge-transfer collisions led to the formation of Kr/sup +/( /sup 2/P/sub 3/2/, /sup 2/P/sub 1/2/)+H(n = 1) and Xe/sup +/( /sup 2/P/sub 3/2/, /sup 2/P/sub 1/2/)+H(n = 1,n = 2) products respectively. Interference patterns in the state-selected relative differential cross sections were clearly resolved and have been ascribed to primary and secondary rainbows and/or Stueckelberg-type oscillations. The H/sup +/+Xe collisions have also been investigated theoretically by the exact close-coupling method. Amore » good agreement between theory and experiment has been found. A novel method for determining the absolute H-atom detection efficiency is suggested.« less
  • A three-body unitary transformation method for the study of three-body forces is presented. Starting with a three-body Hamiltonian with two-body forces, unitary transformations are introduced to generate Hamiltonians that have both two- and three-body forces. For cases of physical interest, the two-body forces of the altered Hamiltonians are phase equivalent (for two-body scattering) to the original and the three-body force vanishes when any interparticle distance is large. Specific examples are presented. Applications for studying the possible role of three-body forces in accounting for trinucleon bound state properties are examined. Calculations of the /sup 3/He and /sup 3/H charge form factorsmore » and Coulomb energy difference with hyperspherical radial transformations and with conventional N-N potentials are performed. The form factor calculations demonstrate how the proposed method can help obtain improved agreement with experiment by the introduction of appropriate three-body forces. Calculations of the Coulomb energy difference confirm previous estimates concerning charge symmetry breaking in the N-N interaction. (AIP)« less
  • Exact and approximate theoretical models of the small-signal single-pass gain in single-mode three-level laser fibers are presented, relevant to the behavior of rare-earth-doped (in particular Er{sup 3+}) silica-based fibers. These models account for the effects of both the pump and signal-mode structures and pump excited-state absorption (ESA), the latter being present for some pump wavelengths in Er-doped silica fibers. By relying on the modal overlap integral formalism introduced earlier for four-level lasers, relatively simple closed-form expressions for the pump absorption and the gain are derived. These expressions are also applicable to four-level laser fibers by a simple adjustment of somemore » of the model parameters.« less
