The existing collaboration with Prof. Illenberger concerning electron attachment studies of gas phase molecules with high electron energy resolution will be continued and with his time of flight technique he can probe the kinetic energy that is released in an inelastic electron molecule interaction with high electron energy resolution. These measurements complement the results that will be obtained via MIKE scans in the presently proposed studies.

Prof. Nigel Mason

Besides beeing the coordinator of several European networks on biomolecules that include Innsbruck as a node Prof. Mason is also frequently visiting the Institut für Ionenphysik. Further participation in our experiments of people from his group are planned. The development of a source to vaporize complex neutral biomolecules with minimal thermal heating is of interest for all participants of the European networks.

Prof. Stefan Matejcik
Department of Plasma Physics
Comenius University
Mlynska dolina F2

The active exchange of students between Bratislava and Innsbruck will continue and Prof. Matejcik will perform complementary studies concerning positive and negative ion formation upon high energy resolution electron interactions with biologically relevant molecules. As a frequent visitor he will support the data evaluation and the presentation of the results.

Prof. Olof Echt
Department of Physics
University of New Hampshire
