Title: Multistage Zeeman deceleration of hydrogen atoms

Abstract

The deceleration of beams of neutral particles possessing an electron spin with time-dependent inhomogeneous magnetic fields is demonstrated experimentally. Half the kinetic energy of a velocity-selected part of a pulsed supersonic beam of hydrogen atoms in the ground state is removed using six pulsed magnetic field stages.
