Abstract:

Gas surface interactions have been studied in the first year of operation of a new state-of-the-art apparatus that can study individual gas-surface collisional events or the velocity distributions of recombining species. Systems studied included Tungsten-O2, N2, H2, He, Ar and Platinum-He, O2CO, O2C2H2, O2C2H4. The direct reaction of oxygen with tungsten has been characterized. The indirect molecular precursor reaction of N2 with tungsten is under investigation. The highly non-thermal CO2 produced by oxidation of CO, C2H2 or C2H4 on Pt has been clearly established. Author
