An unstable free radical beam of SH was produced by the reaction of fluorine atoms with H2S and effused from a Teflon nozzle. The beam was focused using sextupole electric fields. Monte Carlo trajectory simulations showed 300 ± 50 K as the rotational temperature for the chemically produced SH, so that an oriented SH beam with (cos θ ) = - 0.28 could be available in the presence of an intense electric field. The beam intensity of the focused SH is estimated to be about 1011 molecule sr-1 s-1.
