The production of large samples of slow molecules with high internal-state purity is still a major challenge in the fast-growing research field of cold molecules. We propose a promising solution by combining a recently demonstrated centrifuge decelerator [1] with a cryogenic buffer-gas source [2]. The centrifuge decelerator is based on the centrifugal potential in a rotating frame, enables a continuous deceleration of molecular beams to almost a standstill, and is applicable to a large range of species. The cryogenic source provides high intensities of internally cold molecules. In order to optimize the flux of the electrically guided beams [3], both the supersonic and the effusive regime of the buffer-gas cooling have been explored. The obtained results indicate that the optimum is achieved in the so-called boosted effusive regime. In combination with the centrifuge decelerator, continuous beams at intensities of several 109s−1mm−2 occupying a minimum number of internal states, and with close-to-zero velocities are conceivable.
