    We introduce a readily executable method for the optical purification of 'scalemic' (non 50%-50%) mixtures of chiral molecules of opposite handedness ('enantiomers'). The method relies on the formation of two types of dimers, (R-R or S-S) 'homodimers' and (R-S) 'heterodimers.' The selectivity is...

    We report the first detection by optical means of highly vibrationally excited H2 X1Σ+g(vx=6–11). Vibrationally excited H2 was generated using a recently discovered hot-wire effect in H2 gas, and was detected in 40 bands with 2+1 resonantly enhanced multiphoton ionization via the EF...
