    Abstract

    Time-of-flight detection of neutral metastable fragments has been applied to the study of electron-impact dissociation of CF4 molecules. The time-of-flight distributions indicate that a number of distinct processes are involved in the production of metastable fragments. Excitation functions for these processes have been measured up to 400 eV. The results presented are compared with other studies of fragmentation of CF4 and indicate that fragmentation into an excited CF3+ ion and an excited F atom is a prominent process.
