Possible topic for a master thesis: High-resolution electron interaction with PAH molecules

Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are of high relevance in astrochemistry. The aim of this master thesis is the experimental study of the electron interaction with two PAH´s, phenanthrene and heptacene. The used experimental apparatus is a hemispherical electron monochromator, which is coupled to a mass spectrometer.

In the case of phenanthrene, the main question is if this molecule forms a stable parent anion upon electron attachment. Previous studies with different techniques showed no clear agreement.

Regarding heptacene, the scientific aim is to multiply ionize this compound by electron impact and to determine the required amount of energy with highest possible accuracy.
