Abstract

Previously published data on electron stimulated desorption (ESD) from condensed O2 or O2 in solid matrices have been analyzed. Dissociative electron attachment (DEA) via the 2Σg + resonant state can result in two different dissociation products (i.e. by proceeding to the dissociation limits O(3P) + O(2P) and O*(1]D) + O(2p)). The O*(1D) product requires dissociation via a non-adiabatic curve crossing. O* (1D) is the dominant DEA product in gaseous O2. Upon condensation, O(3P) becomes the dominant product; however, the branching ratio depends strongly on the kinetic energy of the dissociating atoms.
