Rene Rugango defends PhD thesis


Rene successfully defends his thesis Spectroscopy of molecular ions in Coulomb crystals.  Congratulations Rene!
 
Rene's thesis builds off his three publications listed below:
 
Trapping and sympathetic cooling of Boron ions, R. Rugango, M. Sinhal, G. Shu, and K. R. Brown, arXiv:1609.09521 (2016)

CaH+ vibronic spectra paper accepted in ChemPhysChem

 


Our paper on Vibronic spectroscopy of sympathetically cooled CaH+ has been accepted at ChemPhysChem. We have measured for the first time the X-A transition in CaH+ and observed four vibronic transitions using dissociation of CaH+ in a Coulomb crystal.
