A story today in Chemistry World discusses how counterintuitive results in ultracold chemistry are helping to build a picture of reactions taking place in deep space.
Two different groups led by Eric Hudson at the University of California and Stefan Willitsch of the University of Basel have both shown that light can play a bigger role than expected in the nascent field of ultracold atom-ion interactions. Read more of the Chemistry World story…
Stefan Willitsch has also just co-Guest Edited a themed issue of PCCP on the physics and chemistry of cold molecules.
