He2+ impact single ionization cross sections of Cu atom
Keywords:Alpha particle impact Single ionization cross section, Binary encounter approximation, Hartree-Fock velocity distribution, Vrien’s cross section
Semi-classical binary encounter approximation has been used for theoretical calculations of single ionization cross sections of Cu atom at ground state by alpha particle impact in energy range varying from threshold 35 keV/amu to 425 keV/amu. An accurate expression of cross section for energy transfer ΔΕ (σΔΕ) as given by Vriens and quantum mechanical Hartree-Fock velocity distributions for target electrons have been used in the calculation. Major contribution to the total single ionization cross sections of Cu are from 4s and 3d subshells. The ionization cross sections decrease with the increase of impact energy same as experimental data reported. The theoretical and experimental results of single ionization cross sections have same trends against the increase of impact energy. The ratio factor falls within 2, varying from 1.26 to 1.86, for given energy range. Theoretical results are under valid range. About 50% of total theoretical results of single ionization cross sections have ratio factor (R) . Major contribution to total ionization cross section is from 3d and 4s subshells-electrons whose contributions varies from 62 to 71% and 41.7% to 23.8% respectively. The higher value of linear correlation coefficient (=0.9647) and lower value of standard deviation (=0.822) shows that results calculated are close to the experimental data in the intermediate and high energy range.
