Stateresolved differential and integral cross sections for the Ne + H{sub 2}{sup +} (v = 0–2, j = 0) → NeH{sup +} + H reaction
Abstract
Statetostate quantum dynamic calculations for the proton transfer reaction Ne + H{sub 2}{sup +} (v = 0–2, j = 0) are performed on the most accurate LZHH potential energy surface, with the product Jacobi coordinate based timedependent wave packet method including the Coriolis coupling. The J = 0 reaction probabilities for the title reaction agree well with previous results in a wide range of collision energy of 0.21.2 eV. Total integral cross sections are in reasonable agreement with the available experiment data. Vibrational excitation of the reactant is much more efficient in enhancing the reaction cross sections than translational and rotational excitation. Total differential cross sections are found to be forwardbackward peaked with strong oscillations, which is the indication of the complexforming mechanism. As the collision energy increases, stateresolved differential cross section changes from forwardbackward symmetric peaked to forward scattering biased. This forward bias can be attributed to the larger J partial waves, which makes the reaction like an abstraction process. Differential cross sections summed over two different sets of J partial waves for the v = 0 reaction at the collision energy of 1.2 eV are plotted to illustrate the importance of large J partial waves in the forwardmore »

Differential cross sections for the reaction D+H/sub 2/..>..HD+H were measured with a novel crossed molecular beam technique, in which a pulse of energetic D atoms is formed by 193 nm photolysis of D/sub 2/S and crossed with a pulse of H/sub 2/ at a variable intersection angle. Speed distributions of the product HD, measured by timeofflight to a mass spectrometer detector, show clearly resolved peaks for v = 0 and v = 1 at centerofmass scattering angles near 180/sup 0/, for an initial relative kinetic energy of 0.95 eV. Analysis of the data by computer simulation of the experiment yieldsmore »

Calculation of statetostate differential and integral cross sections for atomdiatom reactions with transitionstate wave packets
A recently proposed transitionstate wave packet method [R. Welsch, F. HuarteLarrañaga, and U. Manthe, J. Chem. Phys. 136, 064117 (2012)] provides an efficient and intuitive framework to study reactive quantum scattering at the statetostate level. It propagates a few transitionstate wave packets, defined by the eigenfunctions of the lowrank thermal flux operator located near the transition state, into the asymptotic regions of the reactant and product arrangement channels separately using the corresponding Jacobi coordinates. The entire Smatrix can then be assembled from the corresponding fluxflux crosscorrelation functions for all arrangement channels. Since the transitionstate wave packets can be defined inmore » 
Statetostate differential and integral cross sections for vibrationalrotational excitation and elastic scattering of electrons by N/sub 2/ at 550 eV: calculations using extendedbasisset HartreeFock wave functions
We have calculated differential, integral, and momentumtransfer cross sections for vibrationalrotational excitation as well as for pure rotational excitation, pure vibrational excitation, and elastic scattering for electron collisions with N/sub 2/ at 550 eV impact energy. Scattering calculations were carried out in the fixednuclei approximation and excitation cross sections obtained using the sudden approximation. The interaction potential used in these calculations consists of three terms: static and localexchange potentials, calculated from extendedbasisset HartreeFock wave functions as functions of internuclear distance, and a semiempirical polarization potential. Two different local exchange potentials were employed. The results are compared to each other, tomore » 
Quantum mechanical differential and integral cross sections for statetostate vibrational excitation of I/sub 2/ by He
We have performed scattering calculations for vibrationally inelastic collisions of He with I/sub 2/. We employed close coupling to treat vibration, the infiniteordersudden approximation for rotation, and a recently reported potential energy surface based on ab initio calculations. We have calculated statetostate and rotationally summed differential and integral cross sections for three impact energies. The energy dependence of the integral cross sections agrees reasonably well with the recent experiments of Hall et al. 
A crossedbeam study of the stateresolved integral cross sections for the inelastic scattering of OH( X sup 2. Pi. ) with CO and N sub 2
Stateresolved cross sections for the inelastic scattering of OH({ital X} {sup 2}{Pi}) with CO and N{sub 2} have been measured in a crossed molecular beam apparatus over the energy range from 0.5 to 5.5 kcal mol{sup {minus}1}. The magnitude and shape of the excitation functions for the same OH final states were virtually independent of the two targets except near threshold. Both spinorbit conserving and spinorbit changing transitions have been investigated. Cross sections for spinorbit changing transitions of large {Delta}{ital N} were approximately the same magnitude as those for spinorbit conserving transitions. For small {Delta}{ital N}, however, the spinorbit conservingmore »
