The molecular beam was obtained by a laser ablation of condensed NO2 on a cold substrate. The ejected particles were NO2 molecules and had a sharp angular distribution around surface normal. The translational energy was measured as a function of (1) laser power density and (2) an amount of the adsorbed NO2. The beam had approximately thermal distribution of the translational energy and the temperature was in the range from 200 K to 1200 K. In experiment to demonstrate the beam as an oxygen source the surface of a copper target was fully oxidized to CuO.
