Abstract : The cross section for the scattering of He(+) ions by He atoms in the kilovolt energy range is calculated using only Coulomb interactions. Effects due to electron exchange, antisymmetry in the three electrons and a center of mass correction are found to be important and are taken into account. The differential cross section summed over all states of excitation is sensitive to the wave function used for the He ground state. Calculations are made for two different wave functions, and the results are compared with experiment. (Author)
