The fate of 7Be in the Sun. Triple collisions
We evaluate the effect of screening by bound electron in 7Be(p, γ)8B reaction, where 7Be target contains bound electron, in the framework of the adiabatic representation of the three particle problem. A comparison with two other approximations (united atom and folding) is presented. A good agreement between the “united atom” approximation and the exact solution is found. We also discuss the screening corrections induced by two K-shell electrons on a 7Be target. The bound electron screening effect consequences for 7Be and 8B solar neutrino fluxes are discussed.
