Abstract:

A drift tube mass spectrometer and an ion beam machine have been used with a flashlamp pumped tunable dye laser to study photodestruction of atmospheric molecular negative ions. Results are presented for O2-, O3-, CO3-, and NO2-. Problems inherent with the technique and possible improvements are discussed.
