intro


Laboratory for Advanced Materials & Photophysics

We specialize in probing nanoscale processes that govern the performance of light-harvesting, optoelectronic and sensor technologies. To study these microscopic processes, occurring at ultrafast speeds, we combine our expertise in both high-resolution nanofabrication and ultrafast laser optics to capture  real-time information about the motion of atoms and electrons, and the bonds that hold them. Collecting data about these nanosystems — typically lasting for few fleeting picoseconds (1 ps = one millionth of one millionth of a second) — allows us to understand bottleneck mechanisms, and ultimately tailor nanostructured materials that improve the performance of devices.
