Physics Division Seminars bring us speakers on a variety of physics related subjects. Usually these are held in the Building 6008 large Conference Room, at 3:00 pm on the chosen day, but times and locations may vary. For more information, contact our seminar chairman,

Dissociative recombination, in which a molecular cation attaches a free electron and fragments into neutral products, is a superb tool for investigating the dynamics in highly excited molecules. In this seminar I will discuss the experimental tools employed to study this reaction and the data analysis used to interpret the measurements and illustrate this by highlighting results from several recent experiments. Finally, I will present the "next generation" of apparatus which is currently under construction in Stockholm to investigate molecular dynamics from a different perspective.
