Ultracold Molecules: Production and Application

  • Shin Inouye
Part of the Springer Series in Chemical Physics book series (CHEMICAL, volume 115)


The study of ultracold molecules is one of the most attractive frontiers in AMO sciences. I discuss how we can make them from ultracold atoms and show how we can use them to improve the accuracy of the measurements of the variations in fundamental constants.
