Induced radiative transitions of intermediate molecules in heavy ion collisions


Journal Article

Three types of transitions exists in intermediate molecules occuring in heavy ion scattering: spontaneous radiative, induced non-radiative, and induced radiative decay. The latter ones yield an asymmetric angular distribution for molecular X-rays with respect to the ion-beam axis. The experimental verification of this effect would furnish an experimentum crucis for both, the existence of molecular X-rays and the induced radiative transitions. © 1974.
