This comprehensive handbook describes new experimental approaches for the growing numbers of chemists, physicists, and engineers working with atomic and molecular beams. With an emphasis on aspects of design, construction, and proper data analysis, contributors explore many topics of microscopic chemical physics such as elastic, inelastic, and reactive molecular collisions, clusters, and free-standing jets. Also included are descriptions of experimental set-ups and examples of data obtained in molecular beam experiments, with clear explanations of their significance and importance. The book is a practical guide that will help in planning the structure of experiments and analyzing their results.

"This collection of twenty-seven papers by different authors is on the subject of atomic and molecular beams, primarily from the viewpoint of the experimentalist. Each paper surveys a particular area of current interest in the subject. The mathematics and the physical theory relevant to the
aspect of the subject treated in each paper are reviewed and summarized but not derived in detail....A valuable reference tool for anyone doing research in the field of atomic and molecular beams and for any student wishing to enter this field of study." --Applied Optics
". . . [the book] contains a very comprehensive account of current molecular beam techniques backed up by an extensive bibliography covering publications up to 1986. . . . The book will be of great interest to existing molecular beam researchers. . . invaluable to anyone intending to make
serious use of molecular beam techniques for the first time." --Contemporary Physics
