the condition of being dissociated into ions (as by heat or radiation or chemical reaction or electrical discharge)
"the ionization of a gas"
the process of ionizing; the formation of ions by separating atoms or molecules or radicals or by adding or subtracting electrons from atoms by strong electric fields in a gas
the process of converting neutral atoms or molecules into ions. The process may occur by dissolving an ionic substance in a dissociating solvent, such as water, or by adding or subtracting an electron to or from an atom or molecule. The latter process occurs, for example, in an electron beam in a mass spectrometer and by interaction of substances with ionizing radiation.
any process that leads to the dissociation of a neutral atom or molecule into charged particles ions; the state of being ionized
Ionization is the process of converting an atom or molecule into an ion by adding or removing charged particles such as electrons or ions. In the case of ionization of a gas, ion pairs are created consisting of a free electron and a positive ion.
