Experimental and theoretical studies of the Bi-excited collision systems He*(23S) + He*(23S, 21S) at thermal and subthermal kinetic energies
We have carried out a comprehensive experimental and theoretical investigation of the autoionizing collision systems He*(23S, 21S) + He*(23S). We present high resolution electron energy spectra,
Binding energies in atomic negative ions
This article updates a ten‐year‐old review of this subject [J. Chem. Phys. Ref. Data 4, 539 (1975)]. A survey of the electron affinity determinations for the elements up to Z=85 is presented, and
High-resolution electron attachment to the molecules CCl4 and SF6 over extended energy ranges with the (EX)LPA method
Using a variant of the laser photoelectron attachment (LPA) method with an extended energy range (EXLPA), we have studied low-energy electron attachment to the molecules CCl4 (Cl− and Cl−2 formation)
A novel electron scattering apparatus combining a laser photoelectron source and a triply differentially pumped supersonic beam target: characterization and results for the resonance
Abstract:A novel electron scattering apparatus for high resolution studies of angle-differential elastic and inelastic electron scattering from atoms and molecules in the gas phase is described and
On the validity of the Arrhenius equation for electron attachment rate coefficients.
In the endothermic case, the activation energy in the Arrhenius equation is close to the threshold energy, whereas in the case of exothermic reactions with an intermediate barrier, theactivation energy is found to be substantially lower than the barrier height.
Low-energy behavior of exothermic dissociative electron attachment
We discuss two models for electron attachment to molecules: the Vogt-Wannier model for capture into a polarization well and the resonance model for dissociative attachment. The Vogt-Wannier model is
Attachment of electrons to molecules at meV resolution
A selective discussion of electron attachment to molecules is presented with emphasis on recent studies of SF6, carried out with a novel laser photoelectron attachment (LPA) method in the energy
