[Comments on this module]


The process of chemi-ionization in alkali atom-halogen atom collisions in the eV range can be explained with an atom-atom model for ion-pair formation [An account of the model is given in a mesoscopic Theoretical methods module (link type: 'is detailed in/clarified in/wider range/project';target; MESO-m3c-mod], via potential curve crossing by means of the Landau-Zener coupling and rotational coupling [Why this explanation is reliable is argued in the Findings (link type: 'contains/segregated in/argued in'; target: A08-m6a]. Therefore we will in the future be able to address the case of atom molecule collisions [Leads for further research (link type: 'contains/segregated in/is detailed in'; target: A08-m6b].
