Prof Andreas Osterwalder

Welcome to the group of Andreas Osterwalder. Our research is focused around the production of cold neutral molecules and their use in fundamental chemical and physical research. We are setting up novel techniques to prepare translationally cold molecules. These molecules shall then be used for studies of collisions at low energies and for spectroscopy.
