What is it about?
Desorption of excited hydrogen atoms was detected from both solid Ar doped with CH4 and free nanoclusters Ar/CH4 at irradiation with an electron beam. It was monitored by an emission of the Lyman-a line.

Why is it important?
Methane is the most important source of energy on Earth and the second most important greenhouse gas, which stimulates intensive research into the conversion of methane and its decomposition in order to obtain hydrogen and more valuable carbon-containing molecules.
