Final state alignment for Li+ + Na(3s) → Li (2p) + Na+ electron transfer

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The final state integral alignment for the electron transfer process 6Li+ + Na(3s) → 6Li(2p) + Na+ is investigated in the keV energy range. Experimentally, polarization analysed photons from the Li I 22S-22P transition are detected in coincidence with scattered Li neutrals in the 1-25 keV impact energy range. Over most of this range, we find good agreement with 26- and 35-state atomic orbital (AO) basis coupled-channel calculations, as well as with 28-state molecular orbital (MO) basis predictions. Limits of validity of the two theoretical approaches are also discussed in terms of the predicted state-to-state transfer cross sections.
