Toward a Molecular "Double-slit" Experiment

A Physics Today article describes new experiments that are testing predictions of Professor David Beratan's group on how infra-red radiation may be used to gate charge flow through molecules.  The recent experiment are testing Beratan's ideas of how vibrational excitation may be used to modulate electronic coupling "pathways" and their quantum mechanical interferences in molecules.  The writeup appears here
