Production of the Molecular Dication ArC by Ion-Molecule Reactions

Abstract

ArC doubly-charged ions have been produced in the reactions of Ar with CO and CO2. These reactions convert an atomic dication into a molecular dication, thus storing energy in a metastable state. For both reactions, we have measured integral cross sections as a function of collision energy and evaluated reaction energetics. The observation that ArC is… (More)
