Electron Impact Excitation and Ionization of Ions Experimental Methods

  • Pierre Defrance
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 145)


The experimental studies of electron impact ionization and excitation of ions are in constant progress since the first crossed electron-ion beam experiment has been performed in 1961.
