Article
For more than 40 years since the first ion-atom collision investigations of the two-electron process of electron transfer with excitation and its resonant and nonresonant features, a satisfactory quantum mechanical treatment has been lacking. We present now such a comprehensive transfer excitation treatment using a three-electron atomic orbital clo...
Article
We report on double and single differential cross section measurements of the 1s2s2S2, 1s2s2pP±2, and 1s2s2pP4 doubly excited states produced by single-electron capture in 6–15 MeV collisions of pre-excited C4+(1s2sS3) ions with H2, He, Ne, and Ar targets. Ab initio cross section calculations based on a three active electrons atomic orbital close-c...

The process of the capture of a target electron into the projectile continuum (ECC) is investigated both experimentally and theoretically for collisions of 1.25-6.00 MeV deuterons with multielectron gas targets. Double-differential cross sections (DDCS), d2σ/dωdE, of the ECC cusp-shaped electron peak involving He, Ne, and Ar gas targets were measur...

The Tandem Accelerator Laboratory of NCSR “Demokritos,” Athens, Greece, is presented. A technical description of the laboratory, the installed setups together with currently implemented upgrades and associated funded projects are given. A few highlights as well as future upgrade plans and access possibilities to external users are also presented.

This study focuses on the details of cascade repopulation of doubly excited triply open-shell C 3+ (1s2s2p) 4 P and 2 P ± states produced in 2-18 MeV collisions of C 4+ (1s2s 3 S) with He. Such cascade calculations are necessary for the correct determination of the ratio R of their cross sections, used as a measure of spin statistics [Madesis et al...

We report on C3+(1s2ℓ2ℓ′ L2S+1)-resolved cross sections of electron capture in collisions of swift C4+(1s2s S3) ions with helium and hydrogen. The study focuses on the formation of doubly excited triply open-shell C3+(1s2s2p) P4 and P2± states with emphasis on the ratio R of their cross sections as a measure of spin statistics. Using zero-degree Au...

Synopsis New state-resolved Li-like carbon Auger KLL measurements of mixed-state C ⁴⁺ (1s ² ¹ S, 1s2s ³ S) ions in 6-15 MeV collisions with He are presented. Results of three-electron semiclassical atomic orbital AOCC coupled channel (3eAOCC) calculations are also presented and compared.

Auger KLn lines are observed in high‐resolution electron spectra obtained in collisions of mixed‐state (1s21S,1s2s3S) He‐like beams of 4 MeV B3+ with H2 and 6 MeV C4+ with He targets. Supporting atomic structure calculations show these lines to correspond to doubly excited states, which can be readily populated by electron transfer to the component...

Normalized electron yields of the formation of 2s2p 3,1P states from the metastable states 1s2s 3,1S and from the ground state 1s21S were obtained in 6-18MeV C4+ collisions with H2, He, Ne and Ar gas targets. The method of zero-degree Auger projectile spectroscopy was used to detect electrons emitted in the Auger decay C4+ (2s2p 3,1P) → C5+ (1s) +...

Single electron transfer to the 1s2s 3S long-lived component of the naturally occurring mixed-state(1s2, 1s2s 3S) C4+ion beam in collisions with gas targets was investigated using zero-degree Auger projectile spectroscopy at the Demokritos 5.5 MV tandem accelerator. The observed KLL Auger spectrum contains 1s2s2p 2P and 4P states resulting from dir...

A gas stripper system has been installed inside the terminal of the Demokritos TANDEM accelerator, in addition to the existing foil stripper system, while two additional post strippers (one gas and one foil) were also installed in the beam line between the analyzing and switching magnets of the accelerator. These installations were necessary for th...

The use of mixed-state ionic beams in collision dynamics investigations is examined. Using high resolution Auger projectile spectroscopy involving He-like ( 1 s 2 1 S , 1 s 2 s 3 , 1 S ) mixed-state beams, the spectrum contributions of the 1 s 2 s 3 S metastable beam component is effectively separated and clearly identified. This is performed with...

Using high resolution Auger projectile spectroscopy involving He-like ($1s^2\thinspace^1\!S, 1s2s\thinspace^{3,1}\!S$) mixed-state beams, the spectrum contributions of the $1s2s\thinspace^3\!S$ metastable beam component is effectively separated and clearly identifi...
Article
In zero-degree Auger projectile spectroscopy (ZAPS), electrons are measured with high energy resolution at 0° with respect to the beam direction and state-selective cross sections can be determined. However, for Auger electrons from long-lived projectile states such as the 1s2s2pPJ4 (with lifetimes ranging from ns to ms depending on atomic number Z...

Effective solid angle correction factors for two high resolution electrostatic spectrometers - a hemispherical and a tandem parallel plate – are determined using SIMION Monte Carlo simulations. Results are compared to experimental correction factors directly determined from Auger spectra produced by 1s ionization in collisions of 6.6 MeV C²⁺ (1s²2s...

Article
The methodology and results of a detailed four-element lens optimization analysis based on electron trajectory numerical simulations are presented for a hemispherical deflector analyzer (HDA), whose entry aperture size is determined by the injection lens itself and is therefore virtual. Trajectory calculations were performed using both the boundary...

Although the current solar cycle 24 is characterized by low solar activity, on March 2015 the most intense geomagnetic storm (G4) of the current solar cycle was recorded. It started on March 17 th and it was the result of the interaction between the complex solar activity which spotted at the active region AR2297 S22W29 and a high speed solar wind...

We have investigated the voltage settings for the 4-element injection lens of a biased paracentric hemispherical deflection analyzer (HDA) with virtual entry aperture using numerical methods. The two lens electrode voltages were varied as free parameters while the electron optical properties of the analyzer were calculated from trajectories with te...

We present the unique benefits of gas and foil pre- and post- stripping in the production of pure ground state (1s?), as well as mixed (1s?, 1s2s) state He-like beams. The availability of such beams in TANDEM accelerators is of vital importance in studies concerning the population mechanisms of the 1s2s2p ?P metastable states produced in collisions...

We investigate the energy resolution and line shape of a biased paracentric hemispherical deflector analyzer considering the distance between the exit focal plane and the detection plane. Equipped with a piezoelectrically controlled location of a 2D position sensitive detector we were able to accurately determine the optimum conditions for best ene...

We demonstrate an experimental approach to the solid angle correction needed for the metastable 1s2s2p ^4P state obtained in ion-atom collisions with gaseous targets. By applying a small bias voltage VGC on the target gas cell, the ^4P contributions are separated into two peaks one arising from inside (which is shifted by e_{VGC}) and the other out...

On March 2015 the most intense geomagnetic storm (G4) of the current solar cycle was recorded. It started on March 17, 2015 and it was the result of the interaction between the complex solar activity which spotted on the active region AR2297 (S22W29) and a high speed solar wind stream from a huge south polar coronal hole with Earth's magnetosphere...

Article
Disturbances in the Earth’s magnetic field during magnetic storms can cause essential changes in the charged particle trajectories in the magnetosphere. This has two main consequences for ground-level observations, changing the effective cut-off thresholds and the effective asymptotic directions of the particles. Both of these consequences are impo...

During a geomagnetic storm, many interesting variations in cosmic ray intensity recorded by the worldwide network of neutron monitor stations are observed. More specifically, a characteristic increase of cosmic ray intensity mainly in the middle latitude stations is observed, due to the geomagnetic cut-off rigidity changes. During the declining pha...
