Abstract : The energetics of charge transfer in collisions of low energy Ar(+) ions with H2, D2, and CO2 molecules have been investigated in ion beam - gas scattering experiments, in which the kinetic energy distributions of product ions which emerge from their collision sites at 90 deg with respect to the projectile beam direction were determined by electrostatic analysis. Information concerning the contributing transfer channels, and therefore concerning the internal states of the product H2(+), D2(+), and CO2(+) ions, has been deduced from the measured KE distributions. The effects of the thermal motions of the target particles (Doppler broadening) have been analyzed, and are discussed in some detail. (Modified author abstract)
