Basic Experimental Techniques

Part of the Springer Series on Atoms+Plasmas book series (SSAOPP, volume 23)


This chapter starts with a description of the various important and requisite experimental techniques to study the multielectron processes including the electron capture, excitation and ionization in ion-atom, electron-ion and ion-ion collisions.


Good Energy Resolution Collision Region Coincidence Technique Electrostatic Deflector Collision Product 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
