We investigate the prospects of near-field matter-wave interferometry for the sensitive determination of molecular properties, such as electric polarizabilities, electric and magnetic dipole moments or even life-times of some molecular states. We discuss how important principles of our present quantum experiments can be transferred to the classical regime, i.e. to a Moiré deflectometer in order to also measure characteristic properties of large clusters and biomolecules.
