molecular ion and atom trapping group

We are an experimental group that works with trapped molecular ions. By laser-cooling co-trapped atomic ions, we can sympathetically cool the molecular ions to milliKelvin temperatures, where velocities and environmental interactions are reduced and where novel molecular control becomes possible. Potential applications of our research range from particle physics to chemistry to astrophysics.
