Publisher's Summary:
Cold polar molecules offer intriguing properties, enabling different areas of research to solve long-standing problems. This highly interdisciplinary book discusses novel methods to create and thermally isolate molecules at temperatures near absolute zero (1 nanoKelvin - 1 Kelvin). It focuses on applications of cold polar molecules in diverse areas of research, such as quantum condensed-matter physics, quantum computation, coherent control of molecular processes, and chemical physics. The text explains how simple experiments in atomic and molecular physics have generated a resonance in many different areas of physics and chemistry, which may change the way we understand nature.
