Abstract

In order to clarify the mechanisms responsible for formation of hydrogenic excited states near solid surfaces, we have carried out measurements of elliptic polarization produced by both grazing incidence and tilted foil collision interactions. The data suggest that hydrogenic oriented and aligned states are formed at the surface with no memory of bulk interactions, and that the observed populated states form a coherent superposition of angular momentum states.
