Abstract:Over the last years, microwave three-wave mixing (M3WM) experiments have been shown to provide a sensitive way to generate and measure enantiomer-specific molecular responses. These experiments opened the door for enantiomeric excess determination in complex samples without previous separation or purification. We present here a new type of experiment, based on M3WMfootnote{Sandra Eibenberger, John Doyle, and David Patterson, emph{arXiv:1608.04691} textbf{(2016)}}, to achieve enantiomeric enrichment of a chiral sample by using microwave pulses. We will show that control over the relative phases and polarizations of pulses provides a way to selectively populate a specific quantum rotational state with an enantiomer of choice. The experimental implementation as well as the characterization of the observed enantiomer-selective responses will be presented and discussed. As a proof of concept and to showcase the applicability of our approach we will present the enantiomer enrichment of several terpenes.
