Abstract:

The differentially pumped apparatus for sampling one-atmosphere sources, described in the first quarterly report, has been completed and initial studies carried out. A usable molecular beam has been attained, originating from the second orifice, but its intensity is much lower than the maximum value predicted. In the present system, the gas expanding from the first orifice as a supersonic beam appears to be completely randomized before reaching the second orifice and very fast reactions, at least, cannot be quenched in sampling from one atmosphere.
