This research program has dealt with atomic collision processes of interest for models of natural or man-made plasmas, such as electrical discharge devices, gas lasers, and atmospheric plasmas. Specific topics have included A Electron-ion recombination of NO, O4 and N4 ions, preparation of data compilations on electron-ion recombination. B experimental measurements of rates of neutral-stabilized electron-ion recombination. C Experimental measurements of recombination of positive with negative ions. D Experimental and theoretical work on ion-atom and ion-molecule elastic and reactive collisions, and laser-induced charge-transfer reactions.
