Ion-Molecule Reactions and Ion Energies in CF4 Discharges
B. Peko, I. V. Dyakov, R. Champion, MVVS. Rao, James K. Olthoff
Absolute cross sections have been measured for reactants typically found in carbon tetrafluoride (CF4) discharges for collision energies below a few hundred electron volts. The reactions investigated include collision-induced dissociation and dissociative electron transfer reactions for CF3+ and F+ colliding with CF4, and collisional electron detachment for F- colliding with CF4. Also presented are measurements of energies and relative intensities of ions generated in dc Townsend CF4 discharges with E/N values ranging from 4 x 10-18 V m2 (4 to 25 kTd). Ion energy and ion intensity data for the Townsend discharges are analyzed in light of the measured cross sections.
