Abstract

We propose and discuss an experiment for the study of neutral gas phase nucleation on a molecular level using propane as the condensable gas. The experiment combines a uniform Laval expansion with soft mass spectrometric detection. The uniform Laval expansion allows nucleation experiments under well-defined conditions while the mass spectrometric detection provides molecular-level information on the molecular aggregates formed. It is discussed how one could observe the onset of nucleation and retrieve the size of the critical nucleus from the mass spectra.

Keywords: Critical Nucleus; Laval Nozzle; Mass Spectrometry; Vacuum Ultraviolet Laser; Propane
