We discuss the experimental challenges in coherent matter wave optics with fullerenes. In particular, the properties of our matter wave source and the features of our efficient, molecule-selective detector with high spatial resolution are presented. Their development was crucial for the successful recording of the molecular quantum interference patterns of individual molecules.
