Abstract : This first volume of the compilation is divided into three main categories: Ionization, Dissociation, and Vibrational and Rotational Excitation. Ionization includes all processes which result in electron ejection from the atomic or molecular target. The Dissociation category includes processes which lead to ionized fragments. Total ionization, which is a measure of the total electron or positive ion production, is included in the Ionization category whereas dissociative ionization cross sections are listed in the Dissociation category. The compilation is limited to experimental measurements and includes data for all atomic species and for those molecules which are important in aeronomy, astrophysics and plasma physics.
