Abstract : The use of the electron retarding potential technique in studies of ionization thresholds and relative transition probabilities to various electronic and vibrational states of ions is discussed. The gases argon, nitric oxide and hydrogen are used to illustrate the technique. The assignment of one electronic state in NO(+) is shown to be questionable and the role that autoionization may play in vibrational excitation is exhibited. (Author)
