The McCamant Group

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.

Information on our Lab

Other than publications, we have documents and PowerPoint presentations available to better understand the chemistry our lab does.



Our Facilities

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.
