The exit charge state and exit angle distribution of 103.5 MeV oxygen ions transmitted through a 1 μm thick Si single crystal was measured as a function of the incident charge state and incident angle with respect to the (110) planar channeling direction. The aim of the present measurement was to investigate the dependence of electron loss and electron capture probabilities on the impact parameter. The conservation rule of the transverse energy allows us to determine the channeling trajectory of the ion from its incident and exit angles. A series of exit charge state and scattering angle distributions, Y(θsc,qexin,qin,t), were measured by scanning the incident angle, θin, with a step of 0.01° for incident charge states of qin = 6, 7 and 8 at path lengths of t = 9500 and 10500 Å. Two parameter mappings of the yields as functions of θin and θsc clearly show characteristic features reflecting the combination of qin and qex, which enabled us to deduce impact-parameter dependent electron transfer cross sections with an aid of a Monte Carlo simulation.
