Relative charge transfer cross section measurements for the excited state Rb(4d) with 7 keV Na+ is reported. The specific channels reported are Na++Rb(4d(5/2))-> Na(nl)+Rb+, where the dominant transfer cross sections channels were nl=3d and 4s. Using a combination of a magneto-optical trap and recoil ion momentum spectroscopy (MOTRIMS methodology), the cross sections were measured relative to the previously studied Na++Rb(5s,5p) systems at the same collision energy.
