Electron Transfer in Simple Atomic Collisions: Recent Theory, Experiment, and Applications

  • James E. Bayfield

Abstract

The search for the mechanisms underlying the transfer of particles and/or energy between interacting atoms or molecules continues to fascinate many investigators in physics, chemistry and biology. Most interesting are those processes which are unusally probable and highly specific, requiring special conditions such as internal energy resonance during some portion of the collisional interaction time. The general questions are:Under what conditions can particles and/or energy be transferred? How can we control these conditions and study the processes in the laboratory?;and Can we make predictive calculations to verify our physical understanding and eliminate the need to do uninteresting experiments? The answers to these questions are not generally available except for some simple atom-atom collisions and a few triatomic cases such as H+ + H2. And we shall see that much remains to be understood even for those simple systems extensively studied in the four years following the closing dates for past monographs on electron transfer.1–5
