Charge transfer in S/2+/ + H collisions at eV collision energies
Abstract
Ab initio molecularorbital methods were used to obtain potentialenergy curves and couplingmatrix elements to determine the cross section for the charge transfer S(2+) (3P) + H(1s) yields S(+) + H(+) at electronvolt collision energies. Results of quantal coupledchannel calculations confirm the indications from the positions of the potentialenergy curves that the cross section is quite small, i.e., less than about 10 to the 20th per sq cm at 1 eV.
