  • THERE has long been an interest in the study of ion-induced dipole clusters of the type H+n (n, odd integer). These positive clusters may be present in gaseous nebulae1,2, and Clampitt and Gowland3 have discovered in mass spectrometer experiments such H+n ions for 3≤n(odd)≤99. The ions are very weakly bound because of the nature of the ion-induced dipole forces involved, and thus must be produced at low temperatures. In these experiments a layer of hydrogen gas is deposited on a metal surface… CONTINUE READING
