Abstract

The process of associative detachment in the (H,H-) collision system is investigated at energies below 12 eV. In this energy region, the interaction potential between H and H- has recently been determined. The energy dependence of the cross section is calculated with explicit allowance for the production of "hot" hydrogen molecules. It is observed that associative detachment provides a possible mechanism for generating an inverted population of the residual molecule such as H2.
