Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 265)


Three different neutralization models are discussed. In the continuum limit their connection is clarified for ion trajectories with unspecified time-dependence. The unifying model is fitted to experiment for He+ → MgO scattering. It is pointed out how difficulties, related to the use of relative ion fractions, can be circumvented. Therefore the results of DISC-experiments, which are absolute intensities, are compared with calculations on the basis of the Muda-Newns model.
