    Swinging in the cold: Coupling of the molecular pendular motion of polar molecules immersed in a superflduid environment induced by a strong electrostatic field is found to lead to the formation of pendulons—spherical harmonic librators dressed by a field of many-particle excitations. The behavior of the pendulon is studied in a broad range of molecule—bath and molecule—field interaction strenghts.

  4. First Examples of de Vries-like Smectic A to Smectic C Phase Transitions in Ionic Liquid Crystals

    Dr. Nadia Kapernaum, Carsten Müller, Svenja Moors, M. Christian Schlick, Eugen Wuckert, Prof. Dr. Sabine Laschat and Prof. Dr. Frank Giesselmann

    Version of Record online: 28 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/cphc.201600829

    Ionic de Vries liquid crystals: Five novel ionic liquid crystals with a smectic C phase, a common liquid crystal phase that is rarely found in ionic materials, are presented. Investigations into the phase transition from the orthogonal smectic A to the tilted smectic C phase reveal similarities to the tilting transition in “de Vries”-type smectics.

  5. Deceleration of a Supersonic Beam of SrF Molecules to 120 m s−1

    Sreekanth C. Mathavan, Artem Zapara, Quinten Esajas and Prof. Steven Hoekstra

    Slowest ever: A Stark decelerator is used to remove a record amount of energy from a supersonic beam of heavy SrF molecules, slowing them to a velocity of 120 m s−1. Time-of-flight profiles (see picture) demonstrate the decreasing velocity of the molecules with increasing deceleration strength.
