Secondary molecular ions, emitted from a LiF target bombarded by a MeV argon beam, are analyzed by a XY-TOF detection system. This new method allows, for each emitted ion, simultaneous measurement of its time-of flight (TOF) and its impact coordinates (XY) on the detector surface, after acceleration by a homogenous electric field. Angular distributions and(More)
Two ices, O2 and a mixture of O2 and N2, are bombarded by 252Cf fission fragments (FF) (approximately 65 MeV at target surface); the emitted positive and negative secondary ions are analyzed by time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS). These studies shall enlighten sputtering from planetary and interstellar ices. Three temperature regions in the 28-42-K(More)
Condensed CO and CO2 are bombarded by approximately 65 MeV 252Cf fission fragments and the desorbed ions are analyzed by time-of-flight mass spectrometry as a function of target temperature, in the ranges 25-33 K and 75-91 K, respectively. Absolute desorption yields are measured up to complete ice sublimation. The mass spectra of both ice targets reveal the(More)
CO-NH(3) and CO-NH(3)-H(2)O ices at 25-130 K were bombarded by (252)Cf fission fragments ( approximately 65 MeV at the target surface) and the emitted secondary ions were analyzed by time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS). It is observed that the mass spectra obtained from both ices have similar patterns. The production of hybrid ions (formed from CO(More)
In this work, we report a joint experimental-theoretical investigation on interaction of vacuum-ultraviolet radiation with trimethylphosphate (TMP) molecule (C(3)H(9)O(4)P) in gas phase. This species together with tetrahydrofuran (THF) are model compounds of deoxyribose nucleic acids (DNA)/ribose nucleic acids (RNA) backbone. Absolute photoabsorption cross(More)
