ABSTRACT
Discusses formal collision theory's indication that the absolute termolecular recombination reaction rate can be expressed in a form associated with direct or indirect mechanisms for the recombination. Calculation of the same exact rate constant; Contrast with rate constants standardly calculated by approximate methods.

    We have measured rates of recombination of electrons with simple molecular ions in the presence of helium at densities from 2.5×1019 to 2.9×1020 cm-3 at reduced temperatures of 77, 125, and 150 K. The results agree surprisingly well with the neutral, collisional recombination mechanism...

    The production of the low-mass dielectrons is considered to be a powerful tool to study the properties of the hot and dense matter created in the ultra-relativistic heavy-ion collisions. We present the preliminary results on the first measurements of the low-mass dielectron continuum in Au + Au...

    In a number of physical environments, electron collisions with molecules and molecular ions initiate and drive the chemistry of the system. In general due to the large mass difference between the electron and target, the cross section is dominated by resonant processes, where the electron can...

    In thermal plasma, there are many recombination processes which are responsible for ionization balance and self-cooling (emission of x-rays) of thermal plasmas (about 1070K). The resonant (indirect) recombination of electrons with positive ions is often the dominant mode overall the direct...

    The effect of ionization and recombination processes on the electrical interactions between a pair of small charged particles in highly collisional plasmas is discussed. In particular, it is shown that these processes suppress the long-range attraction between positively charged particles. The...

    The energy and stability of the ‘‘high spin’’ 7Σ and 5Σ states of N2 have been the subject of many theoretical efforts. These states play an important role in N-atom recombination. The collisional coupling of these states to other excited electronic states...

    The primary purpose of the present work is to provide new refined results from nonperturbative treatment of the radiative damping effect in dielectronic recombination. The present results are used to test and confirm previously reported method [V. Stancalie, Phys. Plasmas 12, 043301 (2005)]...
