Cold and controlled large molecules
In a new project we will develop methods to bring large molecules, from peptides to protein complexes or viruses and cells into the gas-phase and to rapidly cool them to ultra cold temperatures.
These cold molecules can then be transported, sorted and aligned for further investigations, such as x-ray or electron diffraction imaging, matter-wave interferometry, or ultrafast charge migration and energy transfer reactions.
