Electron-Impact Ionization of Ions

  • Erhard Salzborn
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (volume 83)

Abstract

Electron-impact ionization of atoms and ions is one of the fundamental collision processes in all types of plasmas - in astro-physical objects as well as in laboratory discharges. Many of the plasma properties, for example the radiation emitted, depend on the state of ionization of ions in these plasmas. In order to interpret spectroscopic observations and to find theoretical models for the formation and evolution of the plasma, cross sections for electron-impact processes are needed.
