Scientists identified isomeric designer drugs in a sample confiscated by the Amsterdam Police, using a single infrared laser for two-color infrared IR2MS3 experiments. The use of a single laser greatly reduces the experimental complexity of two-color IR2MS3 and enhances its application in fields employing analytical MS.
Researchers demonstrated that Fano structure may also be induced without need of auto-ionization, by dressing the continuum with an ordinary bound state in any atom by a coupling laser. Using multi-photon processes gives complete, ultra-fast control over the interference. The results are published in Nature Communications.
A team of researchers reacted methane with a tantalum cluster catalyst model system and revealed the formation of H2MC dihydride carbides.They used FELICE to characterize the structure of the formed reaction product with IR spectroscopy. The results are published in Angewandte Chemie.
Researchers from FELIX Laboratory and the IMM have disentangled the physics of single-shot all-optical magnetic switching in the recently-discovered ferrimagnet manganese-ruthenium-gallium (MRG). They have experimentally revealed the pulse- and temperature-dependent limits of the switching process, and these findings in turn allow us to deduce the underlying physics. Their results have been published as a Rapid Communication in Physical Review Research.
