    The J=0 many-body Schro¨dinger equation for [sup 4]He[sub N] clusters with N=3-10 is solved numerically by combining Monte Carlo methods with the adiabatic hyperspherical approximation. We find ground state and excited state energies for these systems with an adiabatic separation scheme that...

    Interatomic potentials for the interaction of low-lying excited states of Xe(5p5nl) (nl=6s,6p,5d) with He and Ar have been calculated. A novel method has been developed that refines and extends the results of ab initio electronic structure calculations by incorporating available spectroscopic...

    Differential cross section (DCS) measurements are reported for scattering of a He atomic beam by crossed beams of Ar, C2H2, CO2, and OCS. Relative to the HeAr diffractive structure, the HeC2H2 DCS is moderately damped at small scattering angles and severely damped at large scattering angles; the...

    Time-of-flight measurements were made of neutral helium atom beams extracted from a repetitive, pulsed, positive-point corona discharge. Two strong neutral peaks, one fast and one slow, were observed, accompanied by a prompt photon peak and a fast ion peak. All peaks were correlated with the...

    We investigated the charge distributions of excited He I states resulting from 50-200 kev He[sup +]-He collisions. The pronounced asymmetry of the measured charge distributions confirms the assumption that Paul-trap promotion on the rotating saddle of a two-center field is a dominant excitation...

    Abstract   The decay rate of excited surface electron states on liquid helium is theoretically studied. It is shown that at low temperatures the lifetime of the excited states is strongly limited by spontaneous emission of couples of short-wavelength capillary wave quanta...

    An experimental study has been performed to demonstrate the advantage of employing ambient helium gas in the spectral quality improvement of hydrogen emission in laser-induced plasma from zircaloy-2 samples at both atmospheric and low gas pressure. It was further shown that the optimal results...
