Paper Abstract

Merged Beam studies of the branching ratio for the dissociative recombination (DR) of H3+ (v = 0) indicate that this process is dominated by the indirect mechanism yielding +a rate of ~10-8cm3s-1 at 300K. Measurements for the DR for HeHyield a non-negligible cross section containing deep resonances. The role of dielectronic resonances in the electron impact excitation of H3+ is discussed.
