Analysis of electron impact ionization properties of methane


Published experimental photon and electron impact ionization cross sections of CH4 have been reviewed and analyzed. Absolute partial ionization oscillator strengths (fij) for CH4 , CH + 3 , CH + 2 , CH , H and H2 have been obtained. Electron impact ionization cross sections are recommended based on agreement between the oscillator strength values derived… (More)
