Title: Radiative Charge Transfer between the Helium Ion and Argon

Abstract

The rate coefficient for radiative charge transfer between the helium ion and an argon atom is calculated. The rate coefficient is about $${10}^{-14}\ {{\rm{cm}}}^{3}\,{{\rm{s}}}^{-1}$$ at 300 K in agreement with earlier experimental data.
