What happens when you accelerate hydrogen atoms to a breathtaking velocity of 120’000 m/s and shoot them onto the thinnest membrane there is? You get a absolutely fascinating diffraction pattern! In our newest publication we theoretically describe what to expect … Continue reading
Our manuscript on preparing internally cold beams containing only a single molecular structure was published in Physical Review Letters.
On the 13.th of April the “Lange Nacht der Forschung” (long night of research) will give everybody a great opportunity to get an idea about science and research made in Austria. Our contribution will be presented at the “Altes AKH” … Continue reading
I just spend a very nice and inspriring week at the spring meeting of the German Physical Society in Erlangen, Germany. It’s great to come together with some many people, discuss in a very informal setting and make new connections … Continue reading
Last week I spend two very exciting days in the group of Jochen Küpper at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science, which is at the Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron in Hamburg, Germany. It’s amazing to take a look at research done … Continue reading
In this post we take a look at THE prerequisite for matter-wave optics: how to make a particle behave like a wave.
The task to sort molecules can be quite challenging if they are very similar. This is even more the case if you want to sort a single molecular species according to its three-dimensional structure. The problem is that for most … Continue reading
