Light gives molecules the chills


A Sisyphean task: Laser cooling of molecules is difficult, mainly due to their rich vibrational structure, typically requiring dozens of repumping lasers. However, a proof-of-principle experiment to laser cool SrF molecules has been done (see picture), showing that laser cooling of some molecules is possible with just three lasers, as Highlighted herein
