An atomic collision process can be illustrated and classified by its geometry. An atomic particle \(A\) may collide with an atomic particle \(B\). Particle \(A\) propagates in a collimated aligned beam of atoms, ions, electrons or photons. It may then hit particle \(B\) of an atomic target. Often the target \(B\) is also produced by a collimated beam of particles (crossed-beam technique).
