Abstract

A superthermal component in a metastable Kr* krypton beam produced in a Kr gas discharge has been observed and studied. Evidence is presented that this fast component is due to dissociative recombination of Kr2+, and that the excited Kr direct products of this reaction are predominantly in the 5s states. An effective method (time of flight) for studying the product states of dissociative recombination reactions is thus demonstrated.
