Low temperature rate coefficients for vibrational relaxation of 3Σ+u Rb2 molecules by 3He and 4He atoms

Abstract : We present quantum scattering calculations of 4 He and 3 He colliding with 87 Rb 2. For both helium isotopes, the elastic and inelastic rate coefficients are strongly influenced by the J = 1 partial wave. For the lighter isotope a strong resonance feature of the J = 1 partial wave is responsible for an extremely efficient vibrational relaxation process. We also perform bound-state calculations of the Rb 2 He complex for even Rb permutation symmetry and non-zero total angular momentum. The global Rb 2 He 3 Σ + u potential energy surface used supports four bound states for 4 He and a single one for 3 He. We propose an analysis of the 87 Rb 2 4 He spectrum separating the contributions of Rb 2 rotation and helium motion.
