|Abstract||McDowell's 1985 electronic bath theory of charge transfer is used to investigate the effect of varying surface temperature on the process of ion scattering from a solid surface. As a specific example, the system of Na+ scattered from W is modeled. The neutralization probability is found to have a significant temperature dependence only if the ion orbital energy is fairly close (within 1 eV) to the Fermi level, at closest approach. As well, the temperature effect is greatest when the ion's incident energy is small (on the order of a few eV). (C) 2000 American Institute of Physics. [S0021-9606(00)70305-9].|
