Abstract

Electron-ion recombination in cold magnetized plasmas shows a dramatic enhancement of the radiative recombination rate for bare highly charged ions relative to what standard radiative recombination rates predict. To understand the mechanism of this enhancement we investigate the classical chaotic dynamics of an electron in the combined Coulomb field of the ion and the magnetic field in the electron cooler. An increased flux of electrons visiting the vicinity of the target ion leads to an enhancement of the recombination process.
