Scientists Image the Ultrafast Motion of a Rotating Molecule

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
HAMBURG, Germany, Aug. 6, 2019 — Scientists at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) and the Max Born Institute (MBI) have used precisely tuned pulses of laser light to film the ultrafast rotation of a molecule. The resulting “molecular movie” tracks one and one-half revolutions of carbonyl sulfide (OCS), a rod-shaped molecule consisting of one oxygen, one carbon, and one sulfur atom. The revolutions take place within 125 trillionths of a second, at a high temporal and spatial resolution. Professor Jochen Küpper, from CFEL and the University of Hamburg, led the research with MBI’s...Read full article
