Abstract

We present a new design for a pulsed supersonic-beam source, inspired by the Even-Lavie valve, which is about four times more energy efficient than its predecessor and can run at more than double the repetition rate without experiencing resonances. Its characteristics make it a better candidate as a source for cryogenic-related experiments as well as spectroscopy with rapidly pulsed lasers. The new design is also simpler to build and is more robust, making it accessible to a larger portion of the scientific community.
