II) Electron-Impact Excitation out of the ground state of Atoms
D. Pressure Effects
Collision Transfer Mechanism for He 33D
Due to collisional transfer, the value of the apparent cross section increases with pressure, and the shape of the excitation function changes from a sharp peak to a broad maxima.
