Dissociative electron attachment and electronic excitation in Fe(CO)5

Allan, Michael ; Lacko, M. ; Papp, P. ; Matejčík, Š. ; Zlatar, Matija ; Fabrikant, Ilya I. ; Kočišek, J. ; Fedor, Juraj

In: Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 2018, vol. 20, no. 17, p. 11692–11701

In a combined experimental and theoretical study we characterize dissociative electron attachment (DEA) to, and electronically excited states of, Fe(CO)5. Both are relevant for electron-induced degradation of Fe(CO)5. The strongest DEA channel is cleavage of one metal–ligand bond that leads to production of Fe(CO)4−. High- resolution spectra of Fe(CO)4− reveal fine structures at the...

Long-lived transient anion of c-C₄F₈O

Kočišek, J. ; Janečková, Radmila ; Fedor, Juraj

In: The Journal of Chemical Physics, 2018, vol. 148, no. 7, p. 074303

We report partial cross sections for electron attachment to c-C4F8O, a gas with promising technological applications in free-electron-rich environments. The dissociative electron attachment leads to a number of anionic fragments resulting from complex bond-breaking and bond-forming processes. However, the anion with the highest abundance is the non-dissociated (transient) parent anion which...

Electron attachment properties of c-C₄F₈O in different environments

Chachereau, A. ; Fedor, Juraj ; Janečková, Radmila ; Kočišek, J. ; Rabie, M. ; Franck, C. M.

In: Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics, 2016, vol. 49, no. 37, p. 375201

The electron attachment properties of octafluorotetrahydrofuran (c-C₄F₈O) are investigated using two complementary experimental setups. The attachment and ionization cross sections of c-C₄F₈O are measured using an electron beam experiment. The effective ionization rate coefficient, electron drift velocity and electron diffusion coefficient in c-C₄F₈O diluted to concentrations...

Excited states of Pt(PF₃)₄ andb their role in focused electron beam nanofabrication

Zlatar, Matija ; Allan, Michael ; Fedor, Juraj

In: The Journal of Physical Chemistry C, 2016, vol. 120, no. 19, p. 10667–10674

Electron induced chemistry of metal-containing precursor molecules is central in focused electron beam induced deposition (FEBID). While some elementary processes leading to precursor decomposition were quantitatively characterized, data for neutral dissociation is missing. We provide this data for the model precursor Pt(PF3)4 by using the available cross sections for electronic excitation...

Partial cross sections for dissociative electron attachment to tetrahydrofuran reveal a dynamics-driven rich fragmentation pattern

Janečková, Radmila ; May, Olivier ; Milosavljević, A.R. ; Fedor, Juraj

In: International Journal of Mass Spectrometry, 2014, vol. 365–366, p. 163–168

We report partial absolute cross sections for dissociative electron attachment (DEA) to tetrahydrofuran C₄H₈O. The high sensitivity of the present setup, quantitative DEA spectrometer with time-of-flight analyzer, led to identification of a number of previously unreported fragments (CH₂⁻, OH⁻, CHO⁻, C₄H₅O⁻, C₃H₃⁻) thus revealing complex dissociation dynamics of the...

Growth of ice nanoparticles via uptake of individual molecules: pickup cross sections

Fedor, Juraj ; Lengyel, Jozef ; Kočišek, J. ; Poterya, V. ; Pysanenko, A. ; Svrčková, P. ; Fárník, M.

In: Journal of Physics: Conference Series, 2014, vol. 488, no. 10, p. 102016

We present cross sections for pickup of several atmospherically relevant molecules on ice nanoparticles with the 0.5-3 nm diameter range. The experimental values are supported by molecular dynamics simulations and analytical calculations based on long-range cluster-molecule potentials. The cross sections are all considerably larger than the geometrical cross section of nanoparticle and vary...

Experimental evidence on the mechanism of dissociative electron attachment to formic acid

Janečková, Radmila ; Kubala, Dušan ; May, Olivier ; Fedor, Juraj ; Allan, Michael

In: Physical Review Letters, 2013, vol. 111, no. 21, p. 213201

Two mechanisms for dissociative electron attachment in HCOOH, the formation of HCOO−+H, were proposed in the literature: (i) via a direct electron attachment into a σ∗ resonance, augmented by dipole binding of the incident electron [G. A. Gallup et al., Phys. Rev. A 79, 042701 (2009)], and (ii) with the 1.8 eV π∗ resonance as a doorway state, linked to the products by...

Electron impact excitation of methane: determination of appearance energies for dissociation products

Danko, M. ; Orszagh, J. ; Ďurian, M. ; Kočišek, J. ; Daxner, M. ; Zöttl, S. ; Maljković, J. B. ; Fedor, Juraj ; Scheier, P. ; Denifl, S. ; Matejčík, Š.

In: Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, 2013, vol. 46, no. 4, p. 045203

In this work, we present an experimental study of dissociative excitation of CH₄ utilizing a crossed electron molecular beam experiment. Methane was excited by nearly monochromatic electrons generated by a trochoidal electron monochromator. The dissociative products were identified on the basis of the emission spectra in the ultraviolet–visible (UV/VIS) spectral range. The excitation...

The electronic structure of TEMPO, its cation and anion

Kubala, D. ; Regeta, K. ; Janečková, R. ; Fedor, Juraj ; Grimme, S. ; Hansen, A. ; Nesvadba, P. ; Allan, Michael

In: Molecular Physics, 2013, p. -

The electronic structure of TEMPO (2,2,6,6-Tetramethylpiperidine-N-oxyl) and its cation and anion were studied experimentally using the electron spectroscopy techniques, dissociative electron attachment (DEA) spectroscopy, electron energy-loss spectroscopy, measurement of elastic and vibrational excitation (VE) cross sections and HeI photoelectron spectroscopy. The experiments were supplemented...

Dissociative electron attachment to methylacetylene and dimethylacetylene: Symmetry versus proximity

Janečková, Radmila ; May, Olivier ; Fedor, Juraj

In: Physical Review A - Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics, 2012, vol. 86, no. 05, p. 052702

We have measured absolute dissociative electron attachment (DEA) cross sections in methylacetylene (propyne, C₃H₄) and dimethylacetylene (but-2-yne, C₄H₆). The main feature in the low-energy DEA spectrum is a π* shape resonance giving rise to fragments at 3.4 eV in C₃H₄ and 4.0 eV in C₄H₆. The process C₃H₄+e→ C₃H₃ −+H proceeds via abstraction...
