Inelastic low-energy electron collisions with hydrogen halides HCl, HBr, DBr and HI are studied theoretically on the basis of the nonlocal resonance model of Domcke and Mu¨ndel. The model takes account of the dependence of the dipole-modified threshold exponent on the internuclear distance and of the precise form of the long-range part of the negative ion potential. Cross sections for vibrational excitation, dissociative attachment and associative detachment have been calculated. For all three collision processes, the cross sections calculated are in better agreement with experiment than previous calculations. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Reaction cross sections and threshold energies have been determined for the first time for the isotopically pure reaction, H+n-C4H10→H2+C4H9, for abstraction from both the primary and secondary C–H bonds. Reaction probabilities were measured for H atoms at selected initial energies...

    CRYRING was used to study collision processes between an electron and a negative ion cluster C[sub 4][sup -]. The total detachment cross sections for the production of the neutral 4C, 3C, 2C, and C fragments were measured. The cross sections for pure detachment, and for detachment plus...

    The formation of negative ions by electron attachment in collisions of He atoms in the well-defined low-Rydberg state (n=14)1P with SF6 is studied as a function of the relative velocity of the reactants in a crossed-beam experiment at thermal energies.

    The effect of weakly coupled plasmas on photodetachment cross sections of the hydrogen negative ion is investigated by using the asymptotic from of the bound state wave function and a plane wave form for the final-state wave function. The Debye model is used to represent the plasma effects. The...
