Abstract:

The clustering of Ar to Li has been studied experimentally using a drift tube. Under reported conditions, the major reaction is Li Ar Ar LiAr Ar . The rate coefficients and the mobility of LiAr were deduced by comparing measured arrival time profiles of the ions with profiles generated by a three-dimensional, numerical drift tube model. The predictions of this model are compared in some detail with those of two analytical, three-dimensional, drift-tube models. The mobilities of K in N2 and of K in Ar were determined during checks for systematic errors in the new drift tube. The mobility of Li in Ar was also determined in the course of this work.
