    Abstract

    A time sliced velocity map imaging spectrometer has been developed and successfully used to study the negative ions produced from neutral molecules in gas phase due to low-energy electron impact. Dissociative electron attachment (DEA) is a two step resonant process, resulting into a final anionic and a neutral fragments, occurs due to low-energy electron collisions with primary beam energy starting from 0 eV upto around 15 eV. Whereas, dipolar dissociation starts around above 15 eV and continues upto few hundreds of eV incident electron energy and produces an anionic and a cationic fragments. The differential DEA cross-section, kinetic energy distribution as well as angular distribution of the fragment anions have been studied using the spectrometer. Detailed studies about the formation of anions due to DEA to Cl₂ and CO molecule and dipolar dissociation of O2 molecule have been presented in the thesis.
