    We present calculated cross sections for elastic and inelastic collisions of low-energy electrons with octafluorocyclobutane, c-C[sub 4]F[sub 8]. The integral elastic cross section displays a rich resonance structure, which we analyze in terms of temporary trapping in virtual valence orbitals....

    We investigated the charge distributions of excited He I states resulting from 50-200 kev He[sup +]-He collisions. The pronounced asymmetry of the measured charge distributions confirms the assumption that Paul-trap promotion on the rotating saddle of a two-center field is a dominant excitation...

    Crossed molecular beam experiments on state-resolved vibrational excitation of S0 p-difluorobenzene show only v=0→1,2 excitation of mode 30, the in-phase bend of the fluorine atoms perpendicular to the benzene plane. This high degree of mode 30 selectivity in transitions from the...

    Radiative lifetimes and bimolecular rates have been determined for two-photon laser excited states of Xe* (5p56p, 5p56p’, 5p57p) in argon and xenon buffer gases. The collisional deactivation rates are found to be very large for the Xe 6p’ and 7p states [∼(2–5)×10-10...
