Timur Tscherbul

I am an Assistant Professor of Physics at UNR. My research interests include few-body quantum dynamics, theoretical chemical physics, quantum control, and energy transfer in biomolecules. I also explore the role of quantum phenomena such as coherence and entanglement, in photosynthetic light harvesting. The ultimate goal of this research is to harness the power of […]

Cold molecules: external field control of collisions and chemical reactivity

Cooling, trapping, and controlling molecular gases at subKevin temperatures is a new research frontier at the interface of chemistry and physics. We develop quantum scattering theories and perform accurate numerical calculations of atomic and molecular collisions at ultralow temperatures and explore novel ways to control chemical reactivity with external electromagnetic fields.   The research field […]
