Laser control of chemical reactions

Project Details

Description

The course of chemical reactions is determined by the time-dependent Schrodinger equation. The outcome of reactions can be changed by applying external fields such that the formation of unwanted products can be avoided or minimized.
Current projects include:
1) Laser control of bond-selective fragmentation
2) Laser control of electronic motion
