"Single- and double-electron capture cross sections for slow He2+ impact on O2, H2, and D2";
Physical Review A,
Single- and double-electron capture cross sections have been measured for He2+ impact on O2, H2, and D2
at impact energies smaller than 2 keV/amu. The method applied combines the collection of slow product ions
and electrons with primary ion-beam attenuation and stopping in a differentially pumped target gas chamber.
Comparison with previous experimental and theoretical results is made. For He2+ collisions with H2 we find
that double-electron capture is more important than single-electron capture below 0.2 keV/amu. This result is
also confirmed by cross-section measurements for He2+ on D2.
