In high resolution electron attachment to SF₆, cusp structure due to interchannel coupling has been observed in the cross-section for SF₅⁻ formation at the thresholds for vibrational excitation of the SF₆(v₁) mode up to v₁ = 10. It is superimposed on the broad band peaking around 0.55 eV which has been previously attributed to attachment into a repulsive potential...

Results from a joint experimental study of electron attachment to dichlorodifluoromethane (CCl₂F₂) molecules in the gas phase are reported. In a high resolution electron beam experiment involving two versions of the laser photoelectron attachment method, the relative cross section for formation of the dominant anion Cl⁻ was measured over the energy range 0.001−1.8 eV at the gas...
