Impact parameter method calculations for fully differential ionization cross sections

F. Jarai-Szabo, L. Nagy

Published 2008-10-16Version 1

In this work our previous fully differential ionization cross section calculations using the semiclassical, impact parameter method are improved by a new method suitable to calculate impact parameter values corresponding to different momentum transfers. This goal is achieved by two successive steps. First, using the transverse momentum balance different projectile scattering angles are calculated for the binary and recoil peak regions as a function of the transferred momentum. Then, by treating the projectile scattering as a classical potential scattering problem, impact parameters are assigned to these scattering angles. The new method, which no longer contains empirical considerations, is tested calculating by fully differential ionization cross sections for single ionization of helium produced by fast C$^{6+}$ ions.
