Electrons in Dense Gases

Abstract

The study of electron-molecule interactions in dense gases has received considerable attention recently, and a number of workers [1–7] have reviewed and synthesized these advances. It has been pointed out [2] that knowledge of the effects of the density and nature of a gaseous medium on the “isolated molecule”-electron interactions in the intermediate density range between a low-pressure gas and the condensed phase is essential in understanding radiation effects and mechanisms and in linking the wealth of information on electron-molecule interactions in low-pressure gases to that on similar processes in the condensed phase. In this chapter we briefly review recent studies on electron transport and electron attachment to molecules in dense gases (for a discussion of these processes in nonpolar liquids and the linking of gaseous to condensed-phase behavior see [5, 7]).
