In the present work, the first observation of strong resonance Raman optical activity (RROA) involving more that one resonant electronic state is reported. The chiral transition metal complex bis-(trifluoroacetylcamphorato) copper(II), abbreviated Cu(tfc)(2), exhibits both resonance Raman (RR) and RROA spectra...

The coupling between deformation and motion in a self-propelled system has attracted broader interest. In the present study, we consider an elliptic camphor particle for investigating the effect of particle shape on spontaneous motion. It is concluded that the symmetric...
