Abstract : A total collection ionization device of the Tate and Smith type has been employed to study resonance dissociative attachment by electron impact on target gas molecules and to trap electrons having suffered an inelastic collision with a gas molecule. Resonance dissociative attachment is studied in carbon monoxide, hydrogen, nitrous oxide, oxygen, and methane. New structure is revealed in nitrous oxide and possibly hydrogen. (Author)
