A careful analysis of the ionization mechanism at low and intermediate energies is still lacking. It is generally agreed upon that this study should be performed in the frame of a close-coupling formalism. Using a Classical Trajectory Monte Carlo study of the ionization mechanism at intermediate energies as a guideline, we recently proposed a new scheme for molecular close-coupling calculations, in terms of a “triple-center” basis of adiabatic molecular orbitals, augmented with a set of gaussian pseudostates centred at a point between the nuclei. The construction of this new basis and its application to close-coupling calculations for ion-atom collisions are presented.
