Measurement of basic physical and chemical processes induced by an attachment of a free electron to a molecule or an atom. The molecules and atoms are chosen by relevance to plasma processing, lighting, atmospheric and space chemistry, radiation damage to living tissue, fusion plasma, electron-induced processes at an STM tip, and by pure scientific interest. The latter concerns particularly new resonant phenomena near threshold and in the backward scattering, in scattering with complex molecules, and in collaborations with current development of scattering theory. Emphasis is on advanced custom-built instrumentation, permitting the measurement of high-quality quantitative (absolute) cross sections for elastic scattering, vibrational and electronic excitation, and dissociative electron attachment. Improvement of instrumentation developed to reach this goal is pursued.
