Spatial separation of molecular conformers with interference

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

Testing Born’s rule with molecules

Born’s rule is one of the cornerstones of quantum physics. Needless to say that a potential violation of this rule might point to something very interesting happening. In a brand new publication we report about the first explicit test of … Continue reading

New study on methoxyindoles

When you introduce a substituent to an aromatic system in organic chemistry you are mostly interested in the effect on the aromatic. The reason for this is that substituents are often attached in specific positions to steer the outcome of … Continue reading

Lecture notes on molecular interferometry on the arXiv

In these lecture notes we review recent developments in far-field diffraction at a single nanomechanical grating and Kapitza-Dirac Talbot-Lau interferometry. Among others, it covers the following points: What is the influence of the van der Waals attraction on the matter-wave … Continue reading

New publication in the Journal of Physical Chemistry A

The first publication published in 2017  is a study about the photophysical identity of the lowest excited singlet states for three different fluoroindoles. We could show that the orientation of the transition dipole moment for substituted indoles is not a … Continue reading
