Synchrotron For Neutral Molecules

Device could be used to study collisions between neutral molecules
Department: Science & Technology

Conventional synchrotrons can be used to study only high-energy charged particles. Physicists in Germany have now constructed a new type of synchrotron that can be used to investigate low-energy neutral molecules.

The device, known as a molecular synchrotron, could be used to study collisions between neutral molecules. It was developed by molecular physicist Gerard Meijer, a director at the Fritz-Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, in Berlin, and his coworkers (Nat. Phys., . . .
