Our group is developing new ultrafast vibrational techniques to study nuclear geometry changes during ultrafast photochemical reactions. The primary tool for these studies is a laser spectroscopy technique called femtosecond stimulated Raman (FSRS) which allows for the collection of high-resolution vibrational sepctra with time-resolution better than 100 fs.
We will be developing a state-of-the-art ultrafast laser lab to determine structural changes during charge-transfer dynamics and the extremely short-lived electronic excited states.
Other than publications, we have documents and PowerPoint presentations available to better understand the chemistry our lab does.
We mainly work with a Spectra-Physics Spitfire laser system enclosed under a clean-room roof and behind clear plastic curtains to keep temperature and humidity regulated.
