Optical Spectroscopy of Recombining Ions in Flowing Afterglow Plasmas


Spectroscopy has been an important tool in studies of dissociative recombination (DR) for many years. The early work by Biondi and coworkers established the dissociative nature of the process by demonstrating the Doppler broadening of spectral lines due to the momentum that is imparted on the separating recombination fragments. In more recent work… (More)
