Electron induced reactions play important role in many media and environments:

  • dielectric discharges
  • plasma
  • atmosphere
  • interstellar chemistry
  • radiation chemistry
  • nanofabrication

 

Using the crossed electron/molecule and electron/cluster beams technique we measure:

  • the mass spectra of the molecules/clusters using the BALZERS quadrupol mass analyzer, coupled with a trochoidal electron monochromator
  • the relative cross sections of the ionization reactions, electron ionization and electron attachment
  • Electron impact ionization of molecules:
    • e + AB → AB+ + 2e 
    • e + AB → A+ + B + 2e
  • Electron impact ionization of clusters:
    • e + (AB)m → ABm-1•AB+ + 2e 
    • e + (AB)m → ABm-1•A+ + B + 2e
    • e + (AB)m → ABm-1•A + B+ + 2e
  • Dissociative electron attachment to the molecule:
    • e + AB ↔ AB*- → A- + B
  • Dissociative electron attachment to the molecule/clusters:
    • e + (AB)m ↔ ABm-1•AB*- → ABm-1•A- + B
    • e + (AB)m ↔ ABm-1•AB*- → ABm-1•A + B-
  • the appearance energies of the ions, ionization energies of molecules/clusters, threshold energies of formation of ionic fragments
  • gas temperature dependencies of the reactions
