Magnetic control of supersonic beams : magnetic slowing to isotope separation
General control of atoms and molecules has long been a goal for atomic physicists and physical chemists. Techniques such as laser cooling have been a huge breakthrough in studying ultra cold atoms and BECs. Although laser ...
Elastic slowing of supersonic beams
In this thesis we describe a new method of producing an intense, cold beam of slow noble gas atoms. A beam produced by a pulsed cryogenic supersonic nozzle is reflected from a single crystal atom mirror mounted on the tip ...
Pulsed magnetic slowing of supersonic beams
Supersonic beams provide a source of cold atoms where laser cooling is not applicable. Although the atoms' temperature in the co-moving frame is in the subkelvin range their velocity is on the order of several hundreds of ...
