A cylindrical molecular lens consisting of a far-off-resonant nanosecond Nd:YAG laser pulse which acts on a molecular beam as an optical lens does on a light beam was constructed. Successful applications of the lens to the molecular beams of benzene and CS2 confirm the universality of molecular optics.
