Orange Book Entry

An ion/neutral species interaction in which an electron or electrons are stripped from the ion and/or neutral species in the collision. Generally this is used to describe collisions of fast- moving ions with a neutral species in which the latter is ionised with no change in the number of charges carried by the ion.
