Utilising a high-resolution, trap-based positron beam, we have measured both elastic and inelastic scattering of positrons from water vapour. The measurements comprise differential elastic, total elastic, and total inelastic (not including positronium formation) absolute cross sections. The energy range investigated is from 1 eV to 60 eV. Comparison with(More)

The drift velocity of electrons in mixtures of gaseous water and helium is measured over the range of reduced electric fields 0.1-300 Td using a pulsed-Townsend technique. Admixtures of 1% and 2% water to helium are found to produce negative differential conductivity (NDC), despite NDC being absent from the pure gases. The measured drift velocities are used(More)
Differential and integral cross sections for electron-impact excitation of the dipole-allowed C (1)Pi and D (1)Sigma(+) electronic states of nitrous oxide have been measured. The differential cross sections were determined by analysis of normalized energy-loss spectra obtained using a crossed-beam apparatus at six electron energies in the range 15-200 eV.(More)
The authors report absolute differential and integral cross section measurements for electron-impact excitation of the A (1)B(1) electronic state of water. This is an important channel for the production of the OH (X (2)Pi) radical, as well as for understanding the origin of the atmospheric Meinel [Astrophys. J. 111, 555 (1950)] bands. The incident energy(More)
The electronic spectroscopy of isolated furfural (2-furaldehyde) in the gas phase has been investigated using high-resolution photoabsorption spectroscopy in the 3.5-10.8 eV energy-range, with absolute cross section measurements derived. Electron energy loss spectra are also measured over a range of kinematical conditions. Those energy loss spectra are used(More)
We report on the results of an exhaustive study of the valence electronic structure of norbornane (C(7)H(12)), up to binding energies of 29 eV. Experimental electron momentum spectroscopy and theoretical Green's function and density functional theory approaches were all utilized in this investigation. A stringent comparison between the electron momentum(More)
We present total, elastic, and inelastic cross sections for positron and electron scattering from tetrahydrofuran (THF) in the energy range between 1 and 5000 eV. Total cross sections (TCS), positronium formation cross sections, the summed inelastic integral cross sections (ICS) for electronic excitations and direct ionization, as well as elastic(More)
Triple differential cross section measurements for the electron-impact ionization of the highest occupied molecular orbitals of tetrahydropyran and 1,4-dioxane are presented. For each molecule, experimental measurements were performed using the (e,2e) technique in asymmetric coplanar kinematics with an incident electron energy of 250 eV and an ejected(More)
