Laser zooms in on molecules in motion
A new laser-powered spectrometer will allow scientists to study tiny moving molecules at very high resolution.
“Each electron can be thought of as a tiny magnet that senses the magnetic fields caused by atoms in its nano-neighborhood,” says UC Santa Barbara physicist Mark Sherwin.
“With FEL-powered EPR, we have shattered the electromagnetic bottleneck that EPR has faced, enabling electrons to report on faster motions occurring over longer distances than ever before.”
