Title: Symmetric charge-transfer cross sections of IIIa rare-earth-metal elements

Abstract

Symmetric charge-transfer cross sections of IIIa rare-earth-metal elements (Sc, Y, and Gd) in the impact energy range of 30 to 1000 eV were measured for the first time. The experiments were performed with a crossed-beam apparatus that featured primary ion production by photoionization with a tunable dye laser. Comparing the cross sections of IIIa rare-earth-metal elements ({sigma}{sub Sc}, {sigma}{sub Y}, and {sigma}{sub Gd}) with those of alkali metals or helium {sigma}{sub 0}, we found that {sigma}{sub 0{approx_equal}{sigma}Sc}<{sigma}{sub Y}<{sigma}{sub Gd{approx_equal}}2{sigma}{sub 0}at an impact energy of 1000 eV.

  • We present inclusive cross sections sigma (..delta..Q) for charge transfers between c.m. hemispheres in ..pi../sup -/p interactions at 205 GeV/c. Plotting sigma (..delta..Q)/sigma/sub inelastic/ for different reactions and energies against ..delta..Q - < ..delta..Q > appears to yield a universal symmetric function which would result in an asymptotic limiting value sigma (..delta..Q = 0)/sigma/sub inelastic/ approx. 1/2 for all hadronic reactions.

  • The charge-transfer cross section between a gadolinium atom and its positive ion has been measured with a crossed-beam apparatus that features primary ion production by photoionization with a tunable dye laser. The initial states of the Gd ions were controlled to be in the ground state by tuning the photon energy to be close to the ionization potential energy. The Gd ions in the ground states were collided with the Gd atoms in the ground and some excited states. The cross sections as a function of impact energy (30{endash}1000 eV) were successfully obtained. The cross section at 1000 eV wasmore » 3.3{times}10{sup {minus}14} cm{sup 2}. The obtained cross sections were larger than those of other elements obtained experimentally in the past. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}« less
  • Total cross sections for the symmetric charge transfer reactions of O/sup +//sub 2/(X /sup 2/Pi/sub g/) in selected translational and vibrational energy states have been measured in a single chamber experiment using a combination of photoion--photoelectron coincidence and ion time-of-flight analysis. The ion vibrational states and laboratory translational energies investigated were v=0--7 and 1--40 eV, respectively. The experimental results are compared to recently calculated symmetric charge transfer cross sections using the multistate impact parameter theory. We find that the theory overestimates the cross section by approximately a factor of 2. In addition, the theory predicts a slow drop in themore » cross section as a function of vibrational energy for v>3, whereas the experiments indicate that the cross sections remain high and even increase with v for v>5.« less
  • Previous calculations of ion-atom interactions by the pseudopotential and asymptotic methods are used in the computation of the cross section for symmetric charge transfer at energies below 1 keV. The results for Li/sup +/, Na/sup +/, K/sup +/, Rb/sup +/, Cs/sup +/, and Ca/sup +/ ions are compared with data obtained in beam experiments, and by optical-pumping techniques. The difference in the cross sections for /sup 2/P/sub 1///sub 2/ and /sup 2/P/sub 3///sub 2/ ions of Kr/sup +/ and Xe/sup +/ at thermal energies is studied, and the predictions are compared with recent mobility measurements. Cross sections are obtained formore » U/sup +/-U collisions, and the dependence of the thermal cross section on the polarizability is described. Symmetric charge transfer of the negative ions H/sup -/, Na/sup -/, and Cs/sup -/ is discussed briefly. (AIP)« less
