Takamasa Momose and Co-workers make Cover of Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics

A paper entitled “Manipulation of Translational Motion of Methyl Radicals by Pulsed Magnetic Fields” has been highlighted and featured as the back cover artwork in a February issue of Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics.  The communication authored by Takamasa Momose, Y. Liu, S. Zhou, and P. Djuricanin of the Chemistry Department and D. Carty of the Departments of Chemistry and Physics at Durham University demonstrates the manipulation of the translational motion of polyatomic free radicals by a pulsed magnetic field for the first time. This technique opens possibilities of creating cold and ultracold free radicals of many kinds leading to explore unprecedented cold molecular collisions and reactions.
