Electron capture, ionization and excitation cross sections for keV collisions between fully stripped ions and atomic hydrogen in ground and excited states
Journal article, 2019
Using a semiclassical close-coupling approach, we have calculated electron capture, excitation and ionization cross sections for collisions of fully stripped hydrogen, helium and lithium ions with atomic hydrogen in the ground state and in all excited states up to n=3. The cross sections for collision energies between 1 and 100 keV/u are given in table form. Furthermore, we provide estimates of the accuracy of the cross sections. The set of data presented in this work represent the first complete and consistent quantum study of these collision systems and will find use in the modeling and diagnosis of thermonuclear fusion plasma reactors.
