In this thesis charge transfer is studied in collisions of highly charged ions (Aq+) with neutral particles (B). Because the electron is captured resonantly (i.e. without its binding energy) by the ion, a limited number of highly excited states (characterized by the quantum numbers nlm) is preferentially populated. In the experimental work described in this thesis we have measured state selective electron capture cross sections by means of Photon Emission Spectroscopy. Especially, the most fundamental collision processes are studied: Highly charged ions colliding on atomic hydrogen ... Zie: Summary
