We present experimental results from a novel and versatile decelerator for continuous beams of neutral polar molecules [1]. A beam of polar molecules from an effusive nozzle is injected at the periphery of a rotating disk and electrically guided [2] to the centre along a spiral-shaped electrostatic quadrupole guide. Thus the molecules climb up the centrifugal potential hill and get decelerated as they propagate. The deceleration of continuous beams of neutral CF3H, CH3F, and CF3CCH is demonstrated. The combination of the centrifuge decelerator with a cryogenic buffer-gas cooling source [3] is expected to result in the production of even larger fluxes of slow and moreover internally cold molecules amenable to further cooling [4].
