Atomic and Molecular Beams: Production and Collimation

Cyril Bernard Lucas
September 30, 2017

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...

Compact Plasma and Focused Ion Beams

Sudeep Bhattacharjee
September 30, 2017

Recent research has brought the application of microwaves from the classical fields of heating, communication, and generation of plasma discharges into the generation of compact plasmas that can be used for applications such as FIB and small plasma thrusters. However, these new applications bring...
