Abstract [en]

The paper reports an investigation of the dissociative recombination of   at the heavy-ion storage ring CRYRING. The absolute cross-section has been measured as a function of centre-of-mass energy ranging from 1 meV to 0.1 eV. The experiment performed has shown the dissociative recombination of   to be dominated by three-body break-up, with a branching ratio of about 78%. Competition between the available three-body channels producing the ground state, P(4S), and the first two excited states, P(2D) and P(2P), is observed. The formation of the first excited state dominates over the other two almost equally probable channels with about 75% of all three-body events. The results indicate that the kinetic energy released in the three-body break-up of   is randomly shared between the deuterium atoms. The intra-molecular angle on dissociation has also been investigated. A comparative analysis of the dissociative recombination dynamics for the two isovalent systems,   and  , is undertaken.

Abstract [en]

Dissociative recombination is the process in which a molecular ion recombines with an electron and then fragments into neutral products. This process has been studied in many experiments over the years at the ion storage ring CRYRING at the Manne Siegbahn Laboratory, Stockholm University. In this thesis the experimental methods and data analysis procedures used to investigate dissociative recombination are presented together with the results for several diatomic and triatomic ions. Cross sections and branching fractions of the different breakup channels have been determined. An imaging system was introduced to study the fragmentation channels in detail. The main focus is on the dynamics of the three-body breakup of triatomic dihydride ions. This work includes the results from the dissociative recombination of NO+, SH2+, SD2+, PD2+, NH2+, CH2+, H2O+ and H3+.
