Abstract

Exploiting the technique of velocity slice imaging, we have performed a detailed study of reactive electron scattering with CF4. We have measured the electron impact energy dependence of both the angular and kinetic energy distributions of the channels yielding F- and CF3- anions. These data provide an unprecedented insight into the quantum superposition of the target state and product channels, respectively, of Td and C 3v symmetry, and shed new light on the dissociation dynamics.
