Infrared Spectroscopy of Molecular Ions

  • Takeshi Oka


In various ways molecular ions are opposite to van der Waals molecules so far discussed in this workshop. In order to make the latter molecules are cooled so that they attach to each other. To make molecular ions you rip molecules apart and electrocute them. Van der Waals molecules are very weakly bound while molecular ions are strongly bound although some ions tunnel between a few well bound structures.
