Abstract

The combination of two-dimensional imaging and storage ring techniques was used to study the breakup dynamics of H3+ and D3+ following dissociative recombination. The vibrational distributions of the molecular H2 and D2 fragments produced in the two body fragmentation channel and the kinematical correlation between the hydrogen or deuterium atoms were measured. The linear dissociation energies were found for the kinematical correlation between the hydrogen or deuterium atoms produced in the three body channel.
