DR2013 - Dissociative Recombination: Theory, Experiment and Applications
The 9th International Conference on "Dissociative Recombination: Theory, Experiment and Applications" will be held in Paris from 7 to 12 July 2013.
Paradigm for the reactive collisions, the dissociative recombination of electrons with molecular cations is a major process in the ionized cold and diluted media, often far from equilibrium: interstellar molecular clouds, planetary atmospheres, plasmas formed at the hypersonic entry of space-crafts, plasmas close to the wall of the fusion devices (e.g. ITER project) and combustion gases - either ‘standard', or assisted by electric fields or plasmas. This process is competed by ro-vibrational excitation, dissociative excitation and ion-pair production. Its converse reaction, the associative ionization ("chemi-ionization") is a very important process in the production of charged particles.
The registration will be opened from March 5th to May 3.
All these reactive collisions, driven by the coupling between the electronic and the internuclear movement, are strongly resonant, due to the interference between numerous ionization and dissociation channels. The related experimental methods include the single-pass merged- and crossed- beam devices, the heavy ion storage rings, the ion traps, the stationary or flowing plasma techniques and the laser diagnostics of molecular excitations.
The research on these processes overlaps strongly with those from other fields of molecular physics, devoted to photofragmentation via superexcited states, resonant electronic attachment, and electron-induced processes in large molecules and clusters.
Here are the topics that will be discussed during the conference:
1. Experimental and theoretical studies of dissociative recombination
2. Data needs on dissociative recombination and related processes
3. Quantum chemistry of superexcited molecular states
4. Molecular superexcited states and fragmentation
5. Internal excitation and interactions of molecular ions
6. Complex Molecular Ions: electronic properties and interactions
7. Negative Ions
