Abstract

Using the advanced adiabatic method we have calculated the cross sections for excitation, ionization and electron capture of H(1s) and H(2s) colliding with Li3+ in the energy ranges 0.1-20 keV/u and 0.1-7 keV/u, respectively. All radial and rotational couplings among the adiabatic states with united atom principal quantum number N ≤ 10 have been included in the calculations, as well as the electron promotion to the continuum via the S- and Q-superseries of hidden crossings. The obtained results are compared, when possible, with the results of other cross section calculations or measurements.
