Laboratory Measurements of Charge Transfer on Atomic Hydrogen at Thermal Energies

Savin, Daniel Wolf; Havener, C. C.; Vane, C. R.; Krause, H. F.; Stancil, P. C.; Mroczkowski, T.

We describe our ongoing program to measure velocity dependent charge transfer (CT) cross sections for selected ions on atomic hydrogen using the ion-atom merged-beams apparatus at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Our focus is on those ions for which CT plays an important role in determining the ionization structure, line emission, and thermal structure of observed cosmic photoionized plasmas.
