  1. Adiabatic Mixed-Field Orientation of Ground-State-Selected Carbonyl Sulfide Molecules

    Molecular orientation: Carbonyl sulfide (OCS) molecules are oriented in a combination of nonresonant laser and static electric fields inside a two-plate velocity map imaging (VMI) spectrometer (see figure), and the transition from nonadiabatic to adiabatic orientation for the rotational ground state is studied by varying the applied laser intensity and strength of the static electric field.

  2. Simulating Spatial Microwave Manipulation of Polyatomic Asymmetric-Top Molecules Using a Multi-Level Approach

    Jack B. Graneek, Dr. Simon Merz, Dr. David Patterson, Dr. Thomas Betz and Priv.-Doz. Dr. Melanie Schnell

    Version of Record online: 26 SEP 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201600538

    Estimating trajectories: A theoretical approach to simulate microwave deceleration experiments for asymmetric-top molecules is reported. This numerical approach employs a multilevel dressed state method to determine the AC-Stark shifts of molecular rotational energy levels for acetonitrile and 4-aminobenzonitrile as case studies (see figure).

  3. A Dynamic Ion–Atom Hybrid Trap for High-Resolution Cold-Collision Studies

    Pascal Eberle, Alexander D. Dörfler, Claudio von Planta, Dr. Krishnamurthy Ravi and Prof. Dr. Stefan Willitsch

    Trapped in the cold: A dynamic ion–atom hybrid trap is presented for studies of cold ion-neutral collisions and reactions. The approach is based on pushing a cloud of laser-cooled Rb atoms through a stationary Coulomb crystal of cold ions by using precisely controlled, tunable radiation pressure forces and has significantly improved energy resolution compared with previous experiments. Atom kinetic energies can be tuned over the interval 30–350 mK with energy spreads as low as 24 mK.

  4. Electron Transport in Quasi-Two-Dimensional Porous Network of Titania Nanoparticles, Incorporating Electrical and Optical Advantages in Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

    Mohammad Javadi, Saba Alizadeh, Yusef Khosravi and Prof. Yaser Abdi

    Staying on the straight and narrow: In a quasi-2D porous TiO2 the lateral electron diffusion is prevented and directional diffusion toward the collecting electrode is induced into the electron transport. As a result the electron diffusion coefficient and the collection efficiency increase while the effective surface area remains large. This leads to about 13 % improvement in the power conversion efficiency of the cell in comparison with traditional versions.
