Rate Coefficients for D(1s) + H^+ <--> D^+ + H(1s) Charge Transfer and Some Astrophysical Implications
For redshifts z & 50, where the gas temperature is predicted to be & 50 K (Puy et al. 1993), the rate coefficients used by Puy et al. and Stancil et al. begin to differ significantly from our newly calculated results.
Rate Coefficients for D(1s) + H^+ <--> D^+ + H(1s) Charge Transfer and Some Astrophysical Implications
At z ≈ 400 (T ≈ 1000 K; Puy et al. 1993), the rate coefficients used by them are a factor of ≈ 3 smaller than our results.
