Main research direction

Series of important achievements of international leading level on the study of the high vibration of molecules experimentally and theoretically,including:

1) first observed in the experiments of silane molecules and germane ball gyroscope localized modes in vibration to lower symmetry, a substantial change in turn vibration energy level structure, convincingly proved that they are long life the localized modes of vibration.

2) proved that the local mode vibration is a general trend of the expansion vibration of XYn type molecules in the high vibrational energy area, and the interaction between Coriolis and Fermi will disappear or weaken when the molecules are in local mode vibration.

The main significance of these results:

1) with laser chemical bonds in the molecules of surgical processing in order to make no new molecular nature, the ideal drive a large number of studies have been conducted, but in addition to the individual special small molecules, all experimental exploration has no obvious effect, the reason is that inspire the localized modes of vibration of the life is too short. The work lays the foundation for the search for long-life local mode vibration in the general molecule, bringing hope to the realization of "molecular surgery".

2) it is found that the molecules need to be requantized in the high-vibrational energy zone, namely redefining the quantum number and the zero-order approximation, which provides the experimental basis for a new field of theoretical physics.
