Quantummechanically complete study of charge transfer from nonisotropic initial to nonisotropic final states in H^{+}Na(3p_{+/1}) collisions
Abstract
We are reporting on a quantummechanically complete experimental and theoretical study of electron transfer from nonisotropic initial states to nonisotropic final states. The processes under consideration are the chargeexchange reactions H^{+}+Na(3p_{+/1})>H(2p_{0,+/1})+Na^{+} at a projectile energy of 1 keV, requiring, for a complete description, the determination of a minimum of five real parameters. Two of the three offdiagonal matrix elements and the trace of the density matrix (the total differential cross section) have been directly determined from an angular correlation analysis of the experiment. In parallel, atomicorbital coupledchannel calculations have been performed. The results are used for the final analysis of the densitymatrix elements, and allow a complete extraction of all amplitudes and phases from the experimental data.
