Abstract:

The present volume serves to update most of the areas covered in the previous documents. Such areas include all nuclear processes, and atomic collisions occurring at high energies, i.e., above about 100 eV impact energy. However, even in those areas where new data are not presented here, references are given to past volumes in order to facilitate access to the previous data. Another function of the present volume is to expand somewhat the scope of our data coverage, both with respect to atomic nd molecular structural properties and with respect to atomic collisions by the latter term, we mean two- and three- body collisions between electrons, ions, atoms, molecules, and photons at impact energies sufficiently low that nuclear forces are unimportant. New species and sets of collision partners that have recently assumed importance are treated here, and other systems that may become important in the gas laser context are given attention. A significant amount of new material is also added to the chapter on surface impact phenomena, partly because of current interest in hollow-cathode lasers.
