Nicholas Kotov, U-M Irving Langmuir Distinguished University Professor of chemical sciences and engineering, and Wonjin Choi, chemical engineering research fellow, are co-authors of a new study on twirling infrared light. Researchers found that this technique can examine the structures of molecular crystals and their twists, potentially helping to diagnose harmful accumulations of twisted molecules such as bladder stones or the plaques that appear in Alzheimer’s disease. Kotov and Choi highlight their research findings, elaborating on their new method.
