Dissociative electron attachment (DEA) in ozone has been explored for incident electron energies between 0 and 10 eV. Three resonant regions are observed centred around 1.4, 3.5 and 7.5 eV, respectively. Only the first of these had been reported prior to this work. For the 3.5 eV resonance, a single anionic state appears to be involved; decay is rapid, along the asymmetric stretch coordinate to O- + O2 and O-2 + O, each in its ground electronic state. Within the 7.5 eV resonance region, both two-body and three-body dissociations are active.
