Abstract

"A crossed-beam apparatus has been built and used to study charge transfer between O⁻ ions and O₂ molecules in the ground state and in the metastable, singlet delta, excited state. The energy of the incident ions ranged from 10 to 10,000 eV.

The cross section for charge transfer between O⁻ and ground state O₂ was found to peak at about 5 keV, as predicted on the basis of the Rapp and Francis theory. At the lower energies there is good agreement with the previous measurements of Snow et al., and Rutherford and Turner, who also used crossed beam techniques. The cross section for charge transfer between O⁻ and metastable excited O₂(1Δg) was found to be small over the energy range of 40 to 10,000 eV. There are no other experimental measurements for comparison"--Abstract, leaf ii.
