Coherent Enantiomer-Selective Population Enrichment Using Tailored Microwave Fields

Coherent Enantiomer-Selective Population Enrichment Using Tailored Microwave Fields
Sérgio R. Domingos, Amanda L. Steber, Anna Krin, Cristóbal Pérez, David Schmitz, Melanie Schnell
Population transfer in chiral molecules is reported as a means to achieve enantiomeric enrichment by C. Pérez, M. Schnell et al. in their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201704901). Enrichment is achieved by using microwave fields. The Penrose stairs represent the molecular rotational states that are simultaneously excited by three microwave pulses. This excitation leads to significant population enrichment of one enantiomer in a particular rotational level, which is exemplified by the black and red spheres.
