A team composed of researchers from the Max Born Institute for Nonlinear Optics and Short Pulse Spectroscopy (MBI), the Israel Institute of Technology (Technion), and Technische Universitaet Berlin (TU Berlin) has generated and characterized a new form of light that can clearly identify molecules’ handedness. The handedness, or chirality, of molecules plays an essential role in chemistry, biology, and drug development: While one type of a chiral molecule might cure a disease, its mirror twin, or enantiomer, could be toxic or even lethal. Opposite chiral molecules look identical,...Read full article
