It is demonstrated that collisions of molecules at temperatures below 1 K can be manipulated by external electromagnetic fields and to discuss possible applications of cold controlled chemistry.
Manipulation of molecules with electromagnetic fields
The goal of the present article is to review the major developments that have led to the current understanding of molecule–field interactions and experimental methods for manipulating molecules with…
Quantum-mechanical theory of atom-molecule and molecular collisions in a magnetic field: spin depolarization.
A theory for quantum-mechanical calculations of cross sections for atom-molecule and molecular collisions in a magnetic field is presented to elucidate the mechanisms for collisionally induced spin depolarization.
Editorial: Quo vadis, cold molecules?
Abstract.We give a snapshot of the rapidly developing field of ultracold polar molecules and walk the reader through the papers appearing in this Topical Issue.

The 1D-3P Transitions in Atomic Oxygen Induced by Impact with Atomic Hydrogen
The rate coefficients for electronic transitions between the 3P and 1D states of oxygen atoms induced by collision with hydrogen atoms are computed using a rigorous quantum mechanical method and…
Light Bipolarons Stabilized by Peierls Electron-Phonon Coupling.
Using numerical simulations and analytical arguments, it is shown that strongly bound yet very light bipolarons appear for strong Peierls coupling, and these properties result from the specific form of the phonon-mediated interaction, which is of "pair hopping" instead of regular density-density type.
