6 [1] Electron capture and ionization cross sections for protons and nitrogen ions incident 7 on N2 are measured in the energy range 10–100 keV using time of flight (TOF) 8 coincidence counting techniques. In the case of proton impact the formation of N2 + ions 9 dominates for both electron capture and ionization channels at all energies, whereas 10 for N ions, the N2 + formation dominates for electron capture and the dissociative 11 processes for ionization channels. The energy distribution of… CONTINUE READING
