Crossed-Molecular Beam Studies of Charge Transfer Reactions at Low and Intermediate Energy
Investigations of the state-to-state reaction dynamics of ion molecule reactions have evolved steadily over the past several years, parallelling in many respects similar developments concerning the kinematics of neutral reactions. The main goal of these studies is the elucidation of the microscopic mechanism of reaction which describes the precise way in which reactants are converted into products. Intimately connected with this question is the disposal of energy--internal, translation and reaction exo- or endothermicity--in the reaction products. We shall summarize in this report recent results obtained primarily in this laboratory using the crossed beams technique.
