Novel corkscrew-laser technique can send molecules spinning rapidly about a selected axis

Modified optical centrifuge has potential to open up new ways for the study of superrotors

16-Oct-2018

Using corkscrew-shaped laser pulses, scientists at DESY have devised a sophisticated optical centrifuge that can make molecules rotate rapidly about a desired molecular axis. The innovative method opens up new ways to control and study super fast spinning molecules, called superrotors. Until now, ...
