Abstract

Temperature programmed desorption has been used to probe the distribution of binding energies of carbon monoxide (CO) to molecular solid thin films of astrophysical relevance. Measurements are reported for solid water (both compact amorphous solid water and crystalline water), ammonia, and methanol surfaces. Binding energy distributions and optimized pre-exponential factors based on the inversion method are tabulated. These are compared to existing data on these systems and astrophysical conclusions drawn.
