It is shown that one can stimulate, by using present day laboratory magnetic fields, transitions between the lm sublevels of fast μHe+ ions formed in muon-catalyzed fusion. Strong fields also cause the self-ionization from highly excited states of such muonic ions. Both effects are the consequence of the interaction of the bound muon with the oscillating field of the Stark term coupling the center-of-mass and muon motions of the μHe+ ion due to the nonseparability of the collective and internal…

Recent Progress in Treatment of Sticking and Stripping with Time-Dependent Approach

We discuss calculation of the stripping cross sections with the time-dependent mesh method which has been developed during the last years for treating different few-body dynamics. A comparison with

Suppression of quantum scattering in strongly confined systems.

We demonstrate that scattering of particles strongly interacting in three dimensions (3D) can be suppressed at low energies in a quasi-one-dimensional (1D) confinement. The underlying mechanism is
