Searching for Clues in Quantum Fingerprints

The Nesbitt group wants to figure out how chemistry works in outer space. In particular, the group wants to understand the “cosmo”-chemistry leading to the generation of soot, which is similar to products of combustion here on Earth.

“Outer space is full of molecules,” Nesbitt explains. “We want to discover how these molecules are...

Solvents don’t just dissolve other chemicals (called solutes) and then sit around with their hands in their pockets. Instead, they get involved in all sorts of different ways when dissolved molecules toss electrons around, i.e., they facilitate charge transfer events. In research, the hard part is fi guring out exactly how and when solvent molecules get involved when an electron hops from one...

The breakdown of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in the stratosphere has been implicated in the destruction of Earth's protective ozone layer. Consequently, scientists have undertaken studies to better understand the structure and behavior of highly reactive, but short-lived, free radicals produced during the breakdown process. The molecules, which contain either fluorine or chlorine, are an...

Carl Lineberger and J. Mathias Weber use laser spectroscopy to investigate the structure and reactivity of gas-phase ions.

Since joining the JILA faculty in 2006, J. Mathias Weber has undertaken studies of isolated mass-selected ions. Until very recently, the behavior of many complex molecular ions, such as DNA, polymer building blocks, and metal complexes...
