Trajectory approach to the calculation of sticking probability
Using a path integral approach, we propose a method for the calculation of sticking probability of atoms on solid surfaces. The method makes use of a sticking trajectory for the calculation. The formalism is illustrated by applying it to the collision of an atom with a solid, the solid being modelled as a collection of bosons, the interaction term in the Hamiltonian being linear in the boson coordinates.
