Abstract

The design and the operation of a continuous flow reflux (CFR) oven used for the formation of an effusive Cs molecular beam which is compatible with ultrahigh vacuum (10-9 Torr) conditions are described. The CFR oven operation utilizes capillary action to recycle the unused part of the Cs molecular beam. A possibility of extending the principle to supersonic beam pressures is discussed.
