We have performed a kinematically complete experiment on transfer excitation in intermediate-energy proton-helium collisions. The differential cross sections were compared to double excitation data and a nonperturbative time-dependent calculation. This comparison reveals the importance of dynamic couplings between the motion of the heavy nuclei and electronic transitions and/or electron-electron correlation effects. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
