A Particle Accelerator in Reverse: Manipulating Molecules with Electric Fields
Producing and controlling cold molecules is essential to studying the collisions between atoms and molecules that give rise to chemistry. Cold molecules relevant to the chemistry of interstellar space, the atmosphere, and combustion are usually produced in molecular beams, which shoot molecules at over 400 m/s. This talk will discuss how we use electric fields to slow molecules from such high speeds down to rest and trap them.
