Describes a modification to Newport Corp.'s BV-100 double solenoid pulsed molecular-beam valve that replaces the Viton tip seal with an O-ring-based plug. Flaw of the BV-100's sealing mechanism; Production of the same characteristic for the short and cold gas pulses as the originally described beam valve through the modification without difficulties associated with replacing the seal.
