Part of the Springer Series on Atoms+Plasmas book series (SSAOPP, volume 26)


Projectile charge-changing processes - electron capture and ionization - are reviewed for collisions of fast, many-electron positive ions with neutral atoms and molecules at relative energies of 1–500 MeV/u. Experimental data and theoretical methods for estimation of the corresponding charge-changing cross sections in this energy range are discussed. Recently measured beam lifetimes of stored heavy ions are compared with theoretical predictions.
