    Survival of the fittest: A genetic algorithm together with an appropriate fitness function is applied to re-engineer and optimize the catalytic properties of a three stranded coiled coil by introducing mutations that enhance the ability to localize CO2 near the metal binding site and lower the pKa of the zinc-bound water molecule.

  4. Universal Diffraction of Atomic and Molecular Matter-Waves: A Comparison of He and D2 Quantum Reflected from a Grating

    Dr. Weiqing Zhang, Ju Hyeon Lee, Hye Ah Kim, Byung Gwun Jin, Bong Jun Kim, Lee Yeong Kim, Prof. Dr. Bum Suk Zhao and Dr. Wieland Schöllkopf

    Version of Record online: 20 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201600965

    A quantum difference: The universal behavior observed for He and D2 beams quantum-reflected and diffracted from a grating is quite different from what is usually observed in matter-wave diffraction from a crystal surface. For all experimental conditions the relative diffraction efficiencies of He and D2 almost overlap.

  5. Impulsive Collision Dynamics of CO Super Rotors from an Optical Centrifuge

    Matthew J. Murray, Hannah M. Ogden, Dr. Carlos Toro, Dr. Qingnan Liu and Prof. Amy S. Mullin

    Molecular gyroscopes: An ensemble of highly rotationally excited CO molecules with oriented angular momentum (see picture) is prepared in an optical centrifuge. The CO rotors undergo collision-induced rotational relaxation with a behavior characterized by large velocities parallel to the initial plane of rotation and retention of their initial spatial orientation.
