On the Semiclassical Impulse Approximation for Electron Capture in Asymmetric Ion-Atom Collisions


A derivation of the impulse approximation for the capture of a target K-shell electron by a light projectile in ion-atom collisions is given in the framework of the semiclassical approximation. The impact-parameter dependence of the capture probability is calculated numerically without further approximations, and shows good agreement with recent… (More)
