Features •Explores the latest techniques for producing a beam from any substance •Discusses the production of beams from the dissociation of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and the halogens •Provides an up-to-date and thorough survey of over 800 references while disproving some atomic beam myths •Compares atomic and molecular beam formation theories with actual experiments •Covers the design of ovens, furnaces, and collimating arrays in metals, plastics, glass, and other materials Summary Atomic and molecular beams are employed in physics and chemistry experiments and, to a lesser extent, in the biological sciences. These beams enable atoms to be studied under collision-free conditions and allow the study of their interaction with other atoms, charged particles, radiation, and surfaces. Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation explores the latest techniques for producing a beam from any substance as well as from the dissociation of hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and halogens.
