An intense cold beam of metastable helium

Swansson, James; Dall, Robert; Truscott, Andrew


We have produced and characterised a slow, bright and intense atomic beam of metastable helium atoms, suitable for atomic physics experiments. The maximum continuous flux attained was 2×1010 atoms/s, while a typical longitudinal peak velocity of the beam
