Influence of nuclear-trajectory variations on atomic-excitation probabilities


Journal Article

Slight variations in the relative motion of two colliding atoms on the excitation amplitudes of the electronic states are discussed. A new theoretical method is proposed which leads to a simple calculation of the electronic amplitudes for a modified classical trajectory R»(t) provided the exact solution is known for one particular time dependence R(t). This is of considerable importance for practical calculations. The method is applied to deeply inelastic collisions between very heavy atoms and may be utilized also for muonic states during muon-induced fission.
