Abstract:

Charge-changing collisions between K, Rb, Cs, Sb, Sr, I, Be, and Xe ions and the gases Ar, N2, and O2 were measured in the low energy range 4 to 130 keV. Similar measurements were made for K and Sr in the intermediate and high energy range 0.1 to 2 MeV as well as rechecks on the previous measurements for Al in the intermediate and high energy ranges. High energy 0.2 to 2 MeV measurements were made with Ag and Sb. Fast-particle detection was used to obtain values for the electron capture cross sections sigma 10 and sigma 21, the ion-stripping cross sections sigma 12, sigma 13, sigma 14, and sigma 15, and the neutral-atom-stripping cross section sigma 01. An oven was developed to provide a collision region containing oxygen mainly in the ground atomic state, but time permitted only preliminary tests without oxygen. Author
