Ultracold molecules

Rempe, Gerhard; Glöckner, Rosa
Molecules possess fascinating characteristics like a wealth of internal states, an exceptional interaction or interesting chemical properties. At extremely low temperatures, quantum effects dominate which opens perspectives for simulation of complex quantum systems or the production of new quantum phases of matter. To experimentally achieve these temperatures, new methods for trapping and cooling molecules and for manipulating their internal states have to be developed.
