Scaling for the filling of highly excited states of ions in charge-exchange reaction with hydrogen atoms and the emission cross sections of optical lines for diagnostic study of impurities in a plasma
Zinov'ev A. N. , Korotkov A. A.
A scaling is proposed for determining the probabilities for the filling of highly excited nl states as a result of capture of an electron by a multiply charged ion in hydrogen atoms in the ground state and the excited states. The cross sections for the emission of optical lines of He+ and C5+ ions are calculated. These cross sections are used to diagnose the impurities in a plasma by means of hydrogen atom beams.
