We report striking observations of coherent caging of iodine, above the B state dissociation threshold, by single collisions with rare gas atoms at room-temperature. Despite the random nature of the solute–solvent interaction, the caged population retains coherence of the initially prepared unbound wave packet. We discuss some new concepts regarding dynamical coherent caging and the one-atom cage effect.
