4 Mechanisms of electron-ion recombination in plasma Electron-ion recombination is a highly exothermic process. The process should therefore have a specific channel of accumulation of the energy released during the neutralization of a positive ion and an electron. Most of these channels of recombination energy consumption are related to either dissociation of molecules, threebody collisions, or radiation, defining the three major groups of mechanisms of electron-ion recombination as follows. 1 25 Dissociative electron-ion recombination The fastest electron neutralization mechanism in molecular gases or, in the presence of molecular ions, is dissociative electron-ion recombination: e + AB + → ( AB)∗ → A + B ∗ .

54) 1. Maximum cross-sections for the where x = ε/ E ik ; the semi-empirical formulas are valid for x excitation of optically permitted transitions are about the same as the gas-kinetic cross-section, that is, σ 0 ∼10−16 cm2 . To reach this cross-section, the electron energy should be 2–3 times greater than the transition energy Eik . The equation for the cross-section σ ik (ε) is different for excitation of electronic terms, from which optical transitions (radiation) are forbidden. 6. It leads to an interesting effect of predominant excitation of the optically forbidden and metastable states by electron impact in non-thermal discharges, where the electron temperature Te is usually much less than the transition energy Eik .

For molecules such as N2 , CO, CO2 , almost each electron-molecular collision leads to a vibrational excitation at Te = 2 eV. This explains why a significant fraction of electron energy in non-thermal discharges goes into vibrational excitation at Te = 1–3 eV. Vibrational excitation by electron impact is preferably a one-quantum process. Nevertheless, multi-quantum vibrational excitation is also important. Rate coefficients keV (v 1 ,v 2 ) for excitation of molecules from an initial vibrational level v 1 to a final level v 2 can be found using the semi-empirical Fridman approximation for multi-quantum vibrational excitation.
