Binary recombination of H3(+) and D3(+) ions with electrons in plasma at 50-230 K.

The results of an experimental study of the H3(+) and D3(+) ions recombination with electrons in afterglow plasmas in the temperature range 50-230 K are presented. A flowing afterglow apparatus equipped with a Langmuir probe was used to measure the evolution of the electron number density in the decaying plasma. The obtained values of the binary… (More)
