Title: Direct measurement of the characteristic three-body electron attachment time in the atmospheric air in direct current electric field

We report the results of theoretical and experimental study of the characteristic time for three-body attachment of electrons produced by 100 fs UV laser pulse in the atmosphere air in the external DC electric field ranged from 0.2 to 10 kV/cm.
