Seeing A Key Air Pollution Reaction In Unprecedented Detail

Bryce Bjork and Thinh Bui at work with frequency comb spectroscopy

Bryce Bjork, Thinh Bui and colleagues use cavity-enhanced frequency comb spectroscopy to monitor in real time important chemical reaction kinetices of OH + CO.  For the first time, they have detected the short-lived elusive intermediate HOCO under ambient conditions.
