    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...

    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...

    Deexcitation cross sections of He(2 3S), He(2 1S), and He(2 1P) by C2H6, Si2H6, CF4, SiF4, and SiCl4 have been measured at a mean collisional energy corresponding to room temperature (295 K) and compared systematically with those by CH4, SiH4, and GeH4 (previously reported) to understand general...
