Abstract:

The purpose of the work was to study the detailed behavior of gas molecules at a solid boundary in order to gain understanding of gas-solid collision phenomena. Experimentally, the scheme involves analysis of the velocity distribution of a beam of molecules incident on a solid surface and analysis of velocity and spatial distribution of the molecules after surface collision. The experimental work has thus far been directed towards the development of 1 a molecular velocity spectrometer, 2 a vacuum apparatus, and 3 a signal detection and discrimination system. The report includes primarily a description of these components.
