Prof. Kang Kuen Ni and her lab extent the life of a dipolar molecule

April 7, 2021
Prof. Ni and her team, including MPHQ postdoc, Will Cairncross, report an extended lifetime of a sodium cesium molecule created in their lab by controlling all the degrees of freedom (including its motion) of an individual dipolar molecule for the first time. Read more about their preveious invention and the findings of her current work with the molecule here. Read more about Prof. Kang Kuen Ni and her lab extent the life of a dipolar molecule
