Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation by Cyril Bernard Lucas

By Cyril Bernard Lucas

Atomic and molecular beams are hired in physics and chemistry experiments and, to a lesser volume, within the organic sciences. those beams allow atoms to be studied below collision-free stipulations and make allowance the learn in their interplay with different atoms, charged debris, radiation, and surfaces. Atomic and Molecular Beams: construction and Collimation explores the newest suggestions for generating a beam from any substance in addition to from the dissociation of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and the halogens.


The booklet not just presents the elemental expressions necessary to beam layout but additionally deals in-depth insurance of:




  • Design of ovens and furnaces for atomic beam production

  • Creation of atomic beams that require larger evaporation temperatures

  • Theory of beam formation together with the Clausing equation and the transmission probability

  • Construction of collimating arrays in metals, plastics, glass, and different materials

  • Optimization of the layout of atomic beam collimators


While many evaluation articles and books speak about the appliance of atomic beams, few supply technical info in their construction. targeting functional program within the laboratory, the writer significantly reports over 800 references to match the atomic and molecular beam formation theories with genuine experiments. Atomic and Molecular Beams: construction and Collimation is a entire resource of fabric for experimentalists dealing with the layout of any atomic or molecular beam and theoreticians wishing to increase the theory.
