The dissociative recombination of HeH+ is studied using multi-channel quantum defect theory. We investigated how the partial waves of incident electrons affect the DR cross section. The DR cross section depends on the position of the center of partial wave expansion for the adiabatic S-matrix of electron scattering. When the Rydberg states correlate with the Rydberg states of the hydrogen atom at large internuclear distances, the center should be on the hydrogen atom for a better convergence of the expansion.
