Monte Carlo event generators in atomic collisions: A new tool to tackle the few-body dynamics

Published: 1 Apr 2010 | Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/hksh74wd23.1

Description of this data

We present a set of routines to produce theoretical event files, for both single and double ionization of atoms by ion impact, based on a Monte Carlo event generator (MCEG) scheme. Such event files are the theoretical counterpart of the data obtained from a kinematically complete experiment; i.e. they contain the momentum components of all collision fragments for a large number of ionization events. Among the advantages of working with theoretical event files is the possibility to incorporate...

Title of program: MCEG
Catalogue Id: AEFV_v1_0

Nature of problem
The code deals with single and double ionization of atoms by ion impact. Conventional theoretical approaches aim at a direct calculation of the corresponding cross sections. This has the important shortcoming that it is difficult to account for the experimental conditions when comparing results to measured data. In contrast, the present code generates theoretical event files of the same type as are obtained in a real experiment. From these event files any type of cross sections can be easily ext ...
