Cool results from DESIREE

An important aspect of the experiments performed in DESIREE now and in the future is to cool stored beams of molecular ions to only one or a few quantum states to enable the interpretation of experimental results and comparisons with theory. Results of a DESIREE experiment to demonstrate the cooling of the rotational degree of freedom of stored OH– ions to the low temperature of the surroundings have been published in Physical Review Letters this week
