Abstract.We consider the electromagnetic production of positron in the collision of slow heavy nuclei, with the simultaneously produced electron captured by one of the nuclei. The cross-section of the discussed process exceeds essentially the cross-section of $e^{+}e^{-}$e+e- production.

One-center calculations of the electron-positron pair creation in low-energy collisions of heavy bare nuclei
Abstract The probabilities of bound-free electron-positron pair creation are calculated for head-on collisions of bare uranium nuclei beyond the monopole approximation. The calculations are based onExpand

Electron-positron pair production in low-energy collisions of heavy nuclei is considered beyond the monopole approximation. The calculation method is based on the numerical solving of theExpand
How to Observe the Vacuum Decay in Low-Energy Heavy-Ion Collisions.
It is shown that the vacuum decay can nevertheless be observed via impact-sensitive measurements of pair-production probabilities and the possibility of such an observation is demonstrated using numerical calculations of pair production in low-energy collisions of heavy nuclei. Expand
Electron–positron pair production in ion collisions at low velocity beyond Born approximation
Abstract We derive the spectrum and the total cross section of electromagnetic e + e − pair production in the collisions of two nuclei at low relative velocity β . Both free–free and bound-free e + eExpand


Electromagnetic production of an electron-positron pair in collisions of heavy nuclei
The cross section for the electromagnetic production of a e+e− pair in the adiabatic scattering of heavy nuclei has been considered.
Positron production in crossed beams of bare uranium nuclei.
Positron creation in crossed-beam collisions of high-energy, fully stripped heavy ions is investigated within the coupled-channel formalism and the positron spectrum is shifted towards higher energies because of the absence of electron screening. Expand
Electron-positron pair creation in low-energy collisions of heavy bare nuclei
A new method for calculations of electron-positron pair-creation probabilities in low-energy heavy-ion collisions is developed. The approach is based on the propagation of all one-electron states viaExpand

Quantum Mechanics of One- and Two-Electron Atoms
One of the simplest, and most completely treated, fields of application of quantum mechanics is the theory of atoms with one or two electrons. For hydrogen and the analcgous ions He+, Li++, etc., theExpand
