Recent developments concerning the relatively cool and dense divertor region of magnetically confined tokamak fusion plasma devices might play a key role in the realization of useful energy production. Atomic and molecular processes, in turn, critically influence the performance of the divertor. In particular, charge transfer from vibrationally excited hydrogen molecules as well as elastic processes and charge transfer between various ground state hydrogen species (ions, atoms and molecules, in isotopic combinations) could be of critical importance for the momentum transport mechanisms and charge balance in this region. We show here the benchmarking results of our fully quantal calculations for a great number of the relevant processes.
