A high-resolution, cavity-based Fourier-transform microwave spectrometer is being commissioned in Hamburg. It is based around the COBRA design (Coaxially Oriented Beam-Resonator Arrangement [1]) and consists of a semi-confocal arrangement of a planar mirror and a spherical curved mirror (diameter=0.6m, R=2m). The high resolution (ca. 3kHz) and larger spectral range (6-40GHz) of this instrument will complement our chirped-pulse FTMW spectrometer [2] (2-8.5GHz), allowing for investigations of nuclear quadrupole hyperfine structure and internal rotation. When combined with a source of cold, slow molecules [3] transit-time and Doppler broadening is reduced and the enhanced resolution may be able to discriminate the parity violating effects in large chiral molecules such as CpReNOCOI. We also present a method [4] that can distinguish between enantiomers by measuring a phase shift in a 3-wave mixing signal that is caused by the opposing signs of the product of the dipole moment components (μa.μb.μc).
