Isotope effect in dissociative electron attachment to acetylene

May, Olivier ; Fedor, Juraj ; Allan, Michael

In: Physical Review A, 2009, vol. 80, no. 1, p. 012706

Absolute partial cross sections for dissociative electron attachment to H–C≡C–H and D–C≡C–D have been measured using a time-of-flight ion spectrometer combined with a trochoidal electron monochromator. For C₂H₂ the present data are in good agreement with the total cross sections measured previously in our laboratory using the total ion-collection method. The present measurements...

Absolute cross sections for dissociative electron attachment to HCl, HBr, and their deuterated analogs

Fedor, Juraj ; May, Olivier ; Allan, Michael

In: Physical Review A, 2008, vol. 78, p. 032701

We have measured absolute dissociative electron attachment cross sections for HX and DX (X=Cl and Br) using a trochoidal electron spectrometer equipped with a total ion collection collision chamber, operated both in a field-free passive ion collection mode, and an active ion collection mode, with an extracting electric field. Our results for Br⁻ from HBr are in an excellent...

Absolute cross sections for dissociative electron attachment to acetylene and diacetylene

May, Olivier ; Fedor, Juraj ; Ibănescu, Bogdan C. ; Allan, Michael

In: Physical Review A, 2008, vol. 77, no. 4, p. 040701

Absolute cross sections for the production of the two astronomy-relevant negative ions H−C≡C⁻ and H−C≡C−C≡C⁻ by dissociative electron attachment to acetylene C₂H₂ and diacetylene C₄H₂ were measured (with a ±25% error bar). Acetylene yielded the C₂H⁻ ion at an electron energy of 2.95 eV with a cross section of 3.6±0.9 pm² and also the C₂⁻ ion at 8.1 eV...
