Towards the study of cold chemical reactions using Zeeman decelerated supersonic beams

Abstract:

Zeeman deceleration is an experimental technique which allows for the manipulation of open-shell atoms and molecules in a supersonic beam thus producing mK-cold, velocity-tunable beams of particles in selected quantum states. The method relies on the Zeeman interaction between paramagnetic particles and time-varying, inhomogeneous magnetic fields generated by pulsing high currents through an array of solenoid coils.

This thesis describes the construction and implementation of a supe...
