C  ****************** FORTRAN77 FUNCTION: RQLNEW ***********************
C
C-----------------------------------------------------------------------
C  PURPOSE: EVALUATES ION IMPACT RATE COEFFICIENTS OF LODGE,
C           PERCIVAL & RICHARDS
C
C  (ALTERNATIVE TO RQLPR  WITH BETTER MAXWELL AVERAGING BUT SLOWER)
C
C  ROUTINE MUST RETURN EXCITATION RATE COEFFICIENT IF N11.LT.N   AND
C  DEXCITATION RATE COEFFICIENT IF N11.GT.N
C
C  NOTE THAT THE RELATION BETWEEN INVERSE PROCESSES IS DETERMINED BY THE
C  TEMPERATURE TP AND THE SPEED VDISP
C  THE TREATMENT GIVEN IS APPROXIMATE EXCEPT IN THE LIMITS VDISP=0 OR
C  VDISP >> DSQRT(2*TP/AMSIMP)
C
C  INPUT
C      Z      = TARGET ION CHARGE+1
C      N11    = PRINCIPAL QUANTUM  NUMBER OF INITIAL LEVEL
C      N      = PRINCIPAL QUANTUM  NUMBER OF FINAL   LEVEL
C      PHI    = (IH/EIJ)F(N ---> N'')
C      ZP     = PROJECTILE CHARGE
C      AMSIMP = PROJECTILE MASS (PROTON UNITS)
C      TP     = PROJECTILE ION TEMPERATURE (K)
C      VDISP  = CONSTANT MEAN SPEED SHIFT FOR THE COLLISION (CM/SEC)
C                     (DESCRIBES BEAM PLASMA SITUATIONS)
C
C  OUTPUT
C      RQLNEW = RATE COEFFICIENT (CM**3 SEC-1)
