Abstract

The state-to-state and state-to-all reaction probabilities have been calculated for three-dimensional reactive and inelastic scattering of Ne + H-2(+)(v = 0, j = 0, 1, 2) at zero total angular momentum. The time-dependent Schrodinger equation is solved by means of Fourier grid and discrete variable representation techniques. The inelastic and reactive scattering probabilities for a broad range of energies are calculated. Although the system has an open reactive channel, the results show that a high fraction of the flux is reflected back due to endoergicity and potential barriers leading to inelastic scattering.
