Abstract [en]

The process of resonant ion-pair formation following electron collisions with H3+ is studied. The relevant diabatic potential energy surfaces and the electronic couplings between these surfaces are calculated. The reaction is then described using a time-dependent approach with wave packets propagating on the coupled potentials. In order to describe the reaction, it is found necessary to include at least two dimensions in the model. The effects of the Rydberg states on the cross-section for this process are discussed.

Abstract [en]

In this thesis I have performed theoretical studies on the reaction dynamics in few-atom molecules. In particular, I have looked at reaction processes in which highly excited resonant states are involved. When highly excited states are formed, the dynamics becomes complicated and approximations normally used in chemical reaction studies are no longer applicable.To calculate the potential energy curve for some of these states as a function of internuclear distance, a combination of structure calculations and scattering calculations have to be performed, and the reaction dynamics on the potentials has been studied using both time-independent and time-dependent methods.The processes that have been studied and which are discussed in this thesis are ion-pair formation in electron recombination with H3+, dissociative recombination and ion-pair formation of HF+, mutual neutralization in H++F- collisions and dissociative recombination of BeH+. Isotope effects in these reactions have also been investigated. Our calculated cross sections are compared with experimentally measured cross sections for these reactions.
