Abstract : The dissociative recombination coefficient of NO(+) with e was measured as (4 plus or minus 1) X 0.0000001 cc/sec. The ions were produced uniformly in space and time in a mixture of N, O, and N2 by chemionization processes. Ion densities were measured by a pulsed total ion collection method. Analysis of the growth of ionization with time and analysis of the dependence of the square of ion density on ion production rate gives essentially identical values for the recombination coefficient.
