Direct Measurement of Electron Loss Rate in Air Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • We present direct local measurements of electron attachment and recombination rates in atmospheric air. Using a microwave scattering based resonantly enhanced multi-photon ionization scheme we monitor the electron density dynamics with nanosecond resolution. 2010 Optical Society of America.
