Abstract

We report bunching, slowing, and acceleration of a supersonically cooled beam of diatomic hydroxyl radicals (OH). In situ observation of laser-induced fluorescence along the beam propagation path allows for detailed characterization of longitudinal phase-space manipulation of OH molecules through the Stark effect by precisely sequenced inhomogeneous electric fields.
