Selected Published Highlights include:

  • Demonstration that a chemical reaction can respond to magnetic fields as weak as the Earth’s and to the direction of a magnetic field (Nature, 2008);
  • Kinetics of ultracold ion-molecule reactions using laser cooled ions and a velocity selector for neutral molecules (PRL, 2008)
  • New quantum mechanical mechanism for collision-induced orientation (PRL, 2013)
  • Experimental and theoretical elucidation of the mechanism of the avian magnetic compass (PNAS, 2012)
  • Dynamics of the primary photo-isomerisation event in vision: ultrafast spectroscopy reveals the role played by a “conical intersection” (Nature, 2010)
  • Electron transfer kinetics at single nanoparticles (NanoToday, 2012).
