Abstract:

A method for producing molecular beams containing molecules in the desired internal rotational, vibrational, electronic, etc. state and traveling with the desired velocity is proposed. The method is illustrated by describing the circumstances that would lead to a state-selected and velocity-selected Nsub 2 beam resulting from collisions with Li with Nsub 2.
