The recombination rate coefficient for molecular
helium ions has been measured in a pulsed afterglow at
1.86 Torr as a function of electron temperature and
electron density without making a^ priori assumptions about
the functional dependence. The concentrations of the
molecular ions and electrons were measured and the source
terms for the molecular ions were included in the rate
Ion concentrations were deduced from intensity
measurements of transitions from levels in Saha
equilibrium. Tandem Czerny-Turner .75 m monochromators
were used to measure the intensities. The electron
temperatures were likewise deduced from spectroscopic
measurements. The electron densities were measured as a
function of time using a confocal Fabry-Perot microwave
interferometer. Unlike previous work, the interferometer
was used to measure the small perturbation due to the
Here’s what’s next.
