On November 12th, Patrick Vaccaro will present “Light and Molecules: Illuminating Chemical Phenomena with Lasers.” Lasers are the flashlight of chemistry. This Saturday Prof. Patrick Vaccaro will tell us how his group uses light and lasers to bend, rotate, and push molecules around in the lab, and even distinguish molecules that are mirror images of each other.
