Mass spectrometric measurements of clusters containing N helium atoms and an NO molecule yield probabilities for charge transfer from He+ to NO that range from 0.8±0.1 for =540 to 0.02±0.02 for =15 000. From this we estimate that the He+ hole hops approximately 70 times before localization at a He+2 core. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.

    Ion-molecule reactions are studied inside large (≈104 atoms) very cold (0.37 K) superfluid 4He droplets by mass spectrometric detection of the product ions. He+ ions initially formed inside the droplets by electron impact ionization undergo charge transfer with either embedded D2, N2, or...

    The surface photochemistry of submonolayer to multilayer amounts of CF3I, adsorbed on Ag(111) at 95 K, has been studied using 248 and 193 nm pulsed laser excitation. For low doses, there is some thermally activated dissociation, limited to 30% of the first monolayer, to form adsorbed CF3 and I....

    The transition probability of an electron from a molecule to a conduction band at an insulator surface is investigated by using the Fano–Anderson model, so as to clarify the effects of nonadiabaticity and irreversibility on this process. The potential for the center-of-mass motion of the...

    We have studied a series of bichromophores of the form A-(CH2)n-D where A is a 9-anthryl group, D is either a N-methylanilino group or a N-methyl-p-methoxyanilino group, and n=1,2,3, or 4. The fluorescence excitation and emission spectra of these molecules have been observed in a supersonic jet...

    The mobility of holes is compared between two molecularly doped polymer systems. The charge-transporting material in one [TAPC, 1,1-bis(di-4-tolylaminophenyl)cyclohexane] is a dimeric analog of the other (TTA, tri-4-tolylamine). The charge-transport sites are essentially identical, but their...

    Multiphoton mass spectrometry when carried out in conjunction with a reflecting field time-of-flight mass spectrometer is shown to yield rich new metastable ion spectra of polyatomic molecules, here aniline. The reflecting field acting also as an energy analyzer is shown to be particularly...

    A study of the clustering of neutral molecules to gas-phase ions was made using mass spectrometry. Equilibrium constants and the associated standard Gibbs free energy changes were determined for the attachment of H2O, SO2, and CO2 to a number of positive and negative ions. Mixed clusters were...
