Control of molecular rotation with an optical centrifuge Korobenko, Aleksey


The major purpose of this work is the experimental study of the applicability of an optical centrifuge - a novel tool, utilizing non-resonant broadband laser radiation to excite molecular rotation - to produce and control molecules in extremely high rotational states, so called molecular "super rotors", and to study their optical, magnetic, acoustic, hydrodynamic and quantum mechanical properties.
