Abstract:

Measurements of axial and radial velocity distributions in axisymmetric free jets of pure gases and binary gas mixtures are reported. Results are compared with extensions of the kinetic theory approach developed by Hamel and Willis and by Edwards and Cheng. The use of binary gas mixtures to produce molecular beams in the 1-10 ev range is described. Measurements of diffusive separation of mixtures in free jets are reported and compared with the theoretical predictions of Zigan and Sherman for nearly continuum flow. Author
