On the quantum mechanical theory of collisional recombination rates, II. Beyond the strong collision approximation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A quantum mechanical theory of collisional recombination (within the Lindemann mechanism, A + B {leftrightarrow} AB*, AB* + M {yields} AB + M) is presented which provides a proper quantum description of the A + B collision dynamics and treats the M + AB* inelastic scattering within the impact approximation (the quantum analog of a classical master equation treatment). The most rigorous version of the theory is similar in structure to the impact theory of spectral line broadening and involves generalized (4-index) rate constants for describing M + AB* collisions. A simplified version is also presented which involves only the ... continued below

Description

A quantum mechanical theory of collisional recombination (within the Lindemann mechanism, A + B {leftrightarrow} AB*, AB* + M {yields} AB + M) is presented which provides a proper quantum description of the A + B collision dynamics and treats the M + AB* inelastic scattering within the impact approximation (the quantum analog of a classical master equation treatment). The most rigorous version of the theory is similar in structure to the impact theory of spectral line broadening and involves generalized (4-index) rate constants for describing M + AB* collisions. A simplified version is also presented which involves only the normal (2-index) inelastic rate constants for M + AB* scattering but which also retains a proper quantum description of the A + B dynamics.
