The conformational separation of biomolecules in the gas phase is an important step toward atomic-resolution diffraction experiments, attosecond dynamics experiments, or kinetic studies of the chemical reactivity of a single conformer.

Here, we present the combination of a laser desorption (LD) source for the vaporization of labile biological molecules [1] with electrostatic control for the spatial separation of conformers [2]. We now demonstrate the conformer separation of the prototypical peptide Ac-Phe-Cys-NH2. We detail the characterization and optimization of LD beams, the use of strong field ionization as an universal probe, and the preparation of conformer-pure beams of the Ac-Phe-Cys-NH2 dipeptide. We analyze options for diffractive imaging of these controlled samples.
