Abstract

The classical trajectory Monte Carlo method is used to calculate total and state selective nl-electron capture cross sections for highly charged ions Z = 4-10, 14, 18 and 26 colliding with water. The initialization for the 1B1 and 3A1 orbitals of the water molecule is based on a Slater orbital expansion. The Z-dependence of the calculated total cross sections is in reasonable agreement with recent data. The K-shell x-ray emission cross sections are determined from the calculated state-selective electron capture results.
