Condensation limited cooling in supersonic expansions

Matthias Hillenkamp, Sharon Keinan, Uzi Even

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An overview is given of the experimental results on supersonic expansions of pure and seeded rare gases and the influence of both gas properties and nozzle geometry on the final speed ratios and translational temperatures reached. These values are determined by complex generation and destruction of clusters.
