Abstract

We present a triple differential experimental study of ionization of molecular hydrogen by proton impact. By comparing cross-sections obtained for coherent and incoherent projectile beams we were able to extract contributions from interference. Two types of distinctly different interferences could be identified. We demonstrate that both types can be separated in the same data set by analyzing triple differential cross-sections for fixed momentum transfer and for fixed recoil-ion momentum.
