Abstract

One of the important fundamental collision processes in hot plasmas containing multiply charged ions is the transfer of electrons in ion-ion or ion-atom collisions:
$$ {A^{q + }} + {B^{r + }} \to {A^{(q - k) + }} + {B^{(r + i) + }} + (i - k)e $$
(1)
Because of the strong Coulomb attraction of electrons by highly charged ions one can expect large cross sections even for ionic collisions with r ≥ 1 as long as the charge state of one collision partner strongly exceeds that of the other, i.e. when q >> r. Moreover it is possible then to set free additional electrons, which means that the less charged ion looses more electrons in a collision of type (1) than will be found attached to the highly charged ion when detected long after the collision. The basic features of this phenomenon of electron transfer with additional ionization will be the principle topic of the present paper.
