Energy loss processes for electrons in atmospheric gases have been studied in the laboratory and in the aurora with sounding rockets. Results include cross sections for dissociative excitation of species such as O2 and CO2 and excitation and ionization cross sections for N2 and O2. (Author)

Space research X : proceedings of open meetings of working groups of the twelfth plenary meeting of COSPAR, Prague, 11-24 May 1969 ( Book )
1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Capture, loss and ionization cross sections of ions and neutral particles ( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Experimental and theoretical work was devoted principally to measuring and calculating cross sections for charge changing and ionizing collisions of H(+), H, and H( - ) with gas molecules. The scope of the accomplishments achieved during this period is indicated in a list of publications included in the report

Electron capture and loss by hydrogen atoms in molecular hydrogen ( Book )
1 edition published in 1959 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Formation of negative ions in a gas by charge transfer from a fast atomic hydrogen beam ( Book )
1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Structure has been reported in the electron loss cross section for hydrogen atoms in H2. Study of the structure in various gases shows that there is no structure for collisions with argon but nine peaks of magnitude 10 to the -16th cm squared between 8 and 40 Kev in CO. Analysis of these peaks support the idea advanced for hydrogen gas that the peaks are caused by formation of negative ions in the target gas by a process in which the electron is captured as though it were a free electron. Mass spectroscopic study reveals that negative ions are formed when hydrogen atoms pass through CO, H2, O2 and H2O. The formation rate varies in CO as predicted from the loss cross section structure and the cross section is approximately 10 to the -16th cm squared. However the type of ions formed does not support the detailed model of the capture process. (Author)
Oral history interviews. Space Science: Voyager by Center for History of Physics (American Institute of Physics) ( )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Interviews were conducted with members of the project's collaboration using a structured question set covering all stages of in the collaborative research process: the formation of the collaboration and its personnel; the organizational structure; the formation of the experiment teams; the drafting of the proposal; funding for U.S. groups by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; use of subcontractors; development of software for data collection and analysis; the collaboration's decision-making style; role of the Project Manager, Project Scientist, Program Manager, Program Scientist, and graduates students; impact of internationalism; patterns of communications; records creation, use, distribution, and retention; also, comments on the interviewee's home institution and trends in graduate education in space science. Interviews (listed by institutional member of the collaboration and by name of individual) were conducted with: Goddard Space Flight Center: Barney Conrath, F. Michael Flasar, Rudolph Hanel; Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology: John Casani, Ernest Franzgrote, Charles Kohlhase, Arthur Lane, Harris Schurmeier, Edward Stone, George Textor; NASA Headquarters: Warren Keller, Ichtique Rasool; Observatoire de Paris: Daniel Gautier; Rice University: Michael Allison; University of Arizona: A. Lyle Broadfoot, Donald Shemansky; University of Colorado: Charles Hord, Charles Lillie; University of Michigan: Thomas Donahue. Other institutions involved in the experiments upon which the AIP study focused include: California Institute of Technology, Cornell University, U. S. Geological Survey, Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Kitt Peak National Observatory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, NASA-Ames Research Center, Rand Corporation, Service d'Aeronomie du CNRS, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, State University of New York at Stony Brook, University of Trieste, University of Wisconsin, and York University (Ontario)
