Title: Electron Interactions with BCL3
Published: December 01, 2002
Abstract: In this paper we review and assess the cross sections for collisions of low-energy electrons with boron trichloride (BCI3). The only available experimental cross section data are for partial and total ionization and electron attachment, and the electron attachment cross sections are uncertain. Calculated values are available for the total elastic, differential elastic, and momentum transfer cross sections, and derived cross sections have been published for vibrational excitation and dissociation. Other than some rather uncertain data on electron attachment rate constants and some measurements of electron drift velocities in BCL3/Ar and BCL3/He mixturs, there are no measurements of the electron attachment, ionization, or transport coefficients for this gas.
