Extended description for electron capture in ion-atom collisions; Application of model potentials within the framework of the continuum-distorted-wave theory

Guly$'a$s, L.*; Fainstein, P. D.*; Shirai, Toshizo

We perform an extension of the continuum-distorted-wave (CDW) approximation for single electron capture by introducing model potentials to describe the interaction of the active electron with the residual-target and projectile ions. The cross sections for electron transfer in collisions of bare and dressed projectile ions with H and He atoms are calculated and compared with experimental data and previous CDW calculations that make use of approximate analytical wave functions to represent the active electron initial and final states. For electron capture in proton-He collisions into definite final states the present calculations are in better agreement with experiments. We trace the differences in the results from both models to a different behavior at projectile scattering angles close to the Thomas peak.
