Truppe's cold molecule lab

Cold and ultracold molecules is a new and exciting field that brings together expertise from atomic, optical and condensed matter physics, physical chemistry and quantum science. We use molecular beams and electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields to cool a gas of molecules to the quantum regime. This allows us to obtain full control over their internal and external degrees of freedom. At very low temperatures (~ 1 ľK) the molecules reveal their quantum nature, start to behave cooperatively and form ordered structures through long-range dipole-dipole interactions. This allows us to study exotic quantum phenomena using the molecules as new probes for fundamental physics and chemistry.
