Abstract
For the first time, the process of charge exchange of Helium mucleus on the metastable Helium atom was observed. The process was detected by the analysis of HeII line afterglow excited in recombination of doubly ionized atoms with slow electrons in plasma formed by electron beam. The kinetic equations set for the most populated states of atom and ion was formulated. Solution of the set provides the satisfactory accuracy of the description of population dependence on time in the afterglow and permitted to determine the absolute value of the charge exchange rate constant. The measured value was compared with theoretical estimates and a good agreement between them was found.
