RESONANT CHARGE EXCHANGE WITH THE p-ELECTRON TRANSITION
Received: December 8, 2000
The asymptotic resonant charge exchange theory is developed for slow collisions of atoms and ions with valent p-electrons. Because of a small rotation angle of the molecular axis in the course of the p-electron transition, the resonant charge exchange cross-section is not sensitive to the rotational energy of colliding particles, and the cross-sections are nearly equal for cases «a», «b», and «d» of the Hund coupling, and also for cases «c» and «e» of the Hund coupling. The cross-sections of the resonant charge exchange process are evaluated under various conditions and for various elements of the periodical table with p-electron shells of atoms and ions.
