We have measured the dependence of the relative integral cross section of the reaction Li + HF → LiF + H on the collision energy (excitation function) using crossed molecular beams. By varying the intersection angle of the beams from 37° to 90° we covered the energy range 25 meV ≤ E(tr) ≤ 131 meV. We observe a monotonous rise of the excitation function with decreasing energy over the entire energy range indicating that a possible translational energy threshold to the reaction is significantly…
