Paper Abstract

The results of theoretical study of orientation, alignment and coherence effects in atomic collisions are presented. The conventional and coherence cross-sections that can be measured in collisional experiments with atomic beams are expressed via quantities dependent on the dynamics only and independent of geometry. The quantities introduced are the generalized Grawert parameters describing the collisional processes that occur in gas cell experiments (average cross-sections). The generalization of Grawert parameters allows us to obtian direct relationships between the average cross-sections and the conventional and coherence cross-sections.
