Gas cluster formation during gas expansion through a supersonic nozzle with a skimmer is described. The role of the buffer zone between a pulsed valve and a nozzle in the regime of pulsed supply of working gas is shown. Influence of the working gas type on the cluster ion pulse parameters is investigated.
