branching ratio

A relationship defining the probability that a particular set, X, of products will be produced in a fusion reaction involving 2 nuclei, in which there is a limited number of possible sets of products that can form.

We propose to exploit the exceptional quality of the Rennes CRESU flows to build an improved CPUF instrument (only the second worldwide), and use it for the quantitative determination of product branching ratios in elementary chemical reactions over a wide temperature range (data which are sorely lacking as input to models of gas-phase chemical environments), as well as the detection of reactive intermediates and the testing of modern reaction kinetics theory.
