Abstract [en]

The paper reports an investigation of the dissociative recombination of PD2+ at the heavy-ion storage ring CRYRING. The absolute cross-section has been measured as a function of centre-of-mass energy ranging from 1 meV to 0.1 eV. The experiment performed has shown the dissociative recombination of PD2+ to be dominated by three-body break-up, with a branching ratio of about 78%. Competition between the available three-body channels producing the ground state, P(S-4), and the. first two excited states, P(D-2) and P(P-2), is observed. The formation of the first excited state dominates over the other two almost equally probable channels with about 75% of all three-body events. The results indicate that the kinetic energy released in the three-body break- up of PD2+ is randomly shared between the deuterium atoms. The intra-molecular angle on dissociation has also been investigated. A comparative analysis of the dissociative recombination dynamics for the two isovalent systems, PD2+ and NH2+, is undertaken.
