Abstract:

The report describes a technique for the measuring positive ion - negative ion two body reaction rates, which was developed for measuring the reaction rates of NO with O2-. Thermal not ions are produced by photoionization of NO and photoelectrons produced in separate chamber containing oxygen are allowed to attach to the neutral gas to produce O2-. The two species are allowed to react by removal of a gas actuated shutter dividing the two chambers. The reactant period by actuation of a second shutter which separates the reaction chamber from a time of flight mass spectrometer. The time of flight mass spectrometer was modified to provide a 100 kcsec sample rate, a theta pinch lyman-alpha light source was developed, and the shutter speeds of 10000 cmsec were attained.
