Abstract:

Dissociative attachment H Cl e yields H Cl is shown to occur with cross-sections of order 1 angstrom sq. or larger only at impact energies within less than about 1 ev of the threshold. Cross-sections for DA are calculated for initial vibrational and rotational states populated significantly at temperatures up to 1200 deg K. The calculated cross-sections reproduce the observed result that raising the initial vibrational level from v0 to v2 raises the cross section by a factor of several hundred. The energy dependence of the cross-section for DA to molecules at temperatures up to 1200 deg K agrees in orders of magnitude with experiment for both HCl and DCl. Author
