In fact $Cl^{-}$ was discovered in the D-region before the ozone hole had been discovered. When one looks at models of D-region ion chemistry, one finds that the ion-ion recombination input data is generic. In order to use ion composition as a diagnostic for environmental perturbations, molecule specific ion-ion recombination rates are needed. An apparatus that coaxially merges positive ion beams with negative beams has been modified to enable the search for photons emitted by the products of ion-ion recombination reactions. Preliminary results will be presented. en_US dc.format.extent 145747 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title LOOKING FOR PHOTONS FROM ION-ION RECOMBINATIONS en_US dc.type article en_US
