  1. ionizing

    Ionization, or ionisation is the process by which an atom or a molecule acquires a negative or positive charge by gaining or losing electrons, often in conjunction with other chemical changes. The resulting electrically charged atom or molecule is called an ion. Ionization can result from the loss of an electron after collisions with subatomic particles, collisions with other atoms, molecules and ions, or through the interaction with electromagnetic radiation. Heterolytic bond cleavage and heterolytic substitution reactions can result in the formation of ion pairs. Ionization can occur through radioactive decay by the internal conversion process, in which an excited nucleus transfers its energy to one of the inner-shell electrons causing it to be ejected.

Examples of ionizing in a Sentence

  1. Chris Carilli:

    We are seeing P352-15 as it was when the Universe was less than a billion years old, or only about 7 percent of its current age, this is near the end of a period when the first stars and galaxies were re-ionizing the neutral hydrogen atoms that pervaded intergalactic space. 'SUPERSTAR' ETA CARINAE ACTS LIKE A GINORMOUS COSMIC-RAY GUN, BUT WHY? Carilli added: Further observations may allow us to use this quasar as a background ‘lamp’ to measure the amount of neutral hydrogen remaining at that time.
