The cross sections for the resonant ion-pair formation (RIP) in electron collision with rovibrationally cold H3+ ions were discussed. The cross section for the RIP process producing H- ions were measured for center-of-mass energies using the CRYRING. The dynamics of the systems were studied using wave packets, propogating on electronically coupled diabatic potential of H3. The results show that the theoretical cross sections were obtained using wave-packet propagation on both one- and two-dimensional model.
