Chemistry and Biochemistry

Our research group utilizes nonlinear microscopy and ultrafast laser spectroscopy to interrogate and understand the optical, electronic, and chemical properties of materials important for advanced solar energy, catalytic, and electronics technologies. We are particularly interested in correlating macroscopic functionality with structural and compositional information on length scales between 10 nanometers and 10 microns. To this end, we use a variety of nonlinear microscopies, ab initio and semi-empirical theoretical methods, and ongoing technique development to advance understanding of how atomic and molecular scale interactions couple with mesoscopic interfaces and defects to determine overall material and device properties.
