Abstract:

The interaction mechanisms of selected ions and atoms with diatomic molecules were studied by making differential energy loss and time of flight measurements on the scattered beam under single collision conditions. Continued attention was given to the He H2 collision system and it was shown that inelastic and charge exchange processes result from interactions occuring near particular projectile-target separations. A number of spectroscopic studies were made in which visible light, vacuum ultraviolet light, and soft x-rays were observed with sufficiently high resolution to identify the excited states produced. Ar-L and C-K soft x-rays from Ar AR and Ar C collisions have been observed. A new computer-controlled, high-resolution soft x-ray spectroscopy facility has been established and used in studies of ion-induced x-rays both from gases and from solid surfaces. Author
