Understanding the behavior of molecules interacting with superfluid helium represents a formidable challenge and, in general, requires approaches relying on large-scale numerical simulations. Here, we demonstrate that experimental data collected over the last 20 years provide evidence that molecules immersed in superfluid helium form recently predicted angulon quasiparticles [Phys. Rev. Lett. 114, 203001 (2015)PRLTAO0031-900710.1103/PhysRevLett.114.203001]. Most important, casting the many-body…

A New Angle on Quantum Impurities Quasiparticles called angulons can simplify the theoretical description of a molecule immersed in a quantum solvent
U nderstanding how impurities interact with a quantum environment is an important problem with widespread implications in physics [1, 2]. An impurity has complex quantum-mechanical interactions with
Intermolecular forces and correlations mediated by a phonon bath.
TLDR
The biangulon quasiparticle is introduced, describing two rotating molecules that align with respect to each other due to the effective attractive interaction mediated by the excitations of the bath, and a diagonalization scheme is introduced that allows the transition from two separated angulons to a biangULon as a function of the distance between the two molecules.

Strong coupling Bose polarons out of equilibrium: Dynamical RG approach
When a mobile impurity interacts with a surrounding bath of bosons, it forms a polaron. Numerous methods have been developed to calculate how the energy and the effective mass of the polaron are
Effect of a magnetic field on molecule-solvent angular momentum transfer.
TLDR
It is shown that exchange of angular momentum between the molecule and the solvent can be altered by the field, even though the solvent itself is non-magnetic, and a possibility to control resonant emission of phonons using a magnetic field is demonstrated.
Quantum Groups as Hidden Symmetries of Quantum Impurities.
TLDR
The approach based on quantum groups does not only allow for a drastic simplification of impurity problems, but also provides valuable insights into hidden symmetries of interacting many-particle systems.

Strongly aligned molecules inside helium droplets in the near-adiabatic regime.
TLDR
A major advantage of molecules in He droplets is that their 0.4 K temperature leads to stronger alignment than what can generally be achieved for gas phase molecules-here demonstrated by a direct comparison of the droplet results to measurements on a ∼1 K supersonic beam of isolated molecules.
