Atomic collisions


Atomic orbitals In the past we have also studied ion-atom and ion-molecule collisions of relevance for fusion- or astrophysical plasmas:

  • Projectiles: Singly and multiply charged ions
  • Targets: Alkali atoms (Li, Na), molecules (e.g. H2, N2, O2, CO)
  • Processes: Electron capture, target excitation and ionization
  • Methods: Translational energy spectroscopy, photon spectroscopy, Atomic orbital close coupling calculations
