Resonant charge transfer: A + + A A + A + 11.5.2 Cross sections Collisions between an electron and an atom can be approximated by a collision between an electron and one of the electrons of that atom. This results in d σ d ( Δ E ) = π Z 2 e 4 (4 πε 0 ) 2 E ( Δ E ) 2 Then follows for the transition p q : σ pq ( E ) = π Z 2 e 4 Δ E q,q +1 (4 πε 0 ) 2 E ( Δ E ) 2 pq For ionization from state p holds to a good approximation: σ p = 4 π a 2 0 Ry 1 E p - 1 E ln 1 . 25 β E E p For resonant charge transfer holds: σ ex = A [1 - B ln( E )] 2 1 + CE 3 . 3 11.6 Radiation In equilibrium holds for radiation processes: n p A pq emission + n p B pq ρ ( ν , T ) stimulated emission = n q B qp ρ ( ν , T ) absorption Here, A pq is the matrix element of the transition

The intensity I of a line is given by I pq = hfA pq n p / 4 π . The Einstein coef±cients B are given by: B pq = c 3 A pq 8 π h ν 3 and B pq B qp = g q g p A spectral line is broadened by several mechanisms: 1. Because the states have a ±nite life time. The natural life time of a state p is given by τ p = 1 / ∑ q A pq . From the uncertainty relation then follows: Δ ( h ν ) · τ p = 1 2 ¯ h , this gives Δ ν = 1 4 πτ p = ∑ q A pq 4 π The natural line width is usually ³ than the broadening due to the following two mechanisms:...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
