Cold state-selected radicals for the study of low temperature chemistry

Abstract:

Generating a controllable and pure source of molecular free-radicals or open-shell atoms has been one of the primary barriers hindering the detailed study of radical processes in the laboratory. In this thesis, a novel source of state-selected radicals -- composed of a Zeeman decelerator interfaced with a newly-designed magnetic guide -- is introduced. This tuneable source generates a pure beam of velocity-selected hydrogen atoms that will enable the study of radical interactions with exce...
