Quantum theory of charge exchange scattering of atoms at solid surfaces

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Numerical calculations of charge exchange scattering are done on the basis of the semiclassical Anderson-Newns hamiltonian. The validity of the various approximation theories is examined in the limit of the semiclassical theory. Moreover the quantum theory of charge exchange scattering of atoms is developed. It is shown that the quantum theory gives a charge exchange probability comparable to that from the semiclassical theory. © 1986.
