Chemical Physics

Chemical physics encompasses both experimental and theoretical/computational research at the boundaries of chemistry and physics, with a stronger focus on the fundamental physics than in the traditional area of physical chemistry.

Some active projects include studies in:

  • laser control of quantum dynamics
  • excited state molecular dynamics
  • rotational spectroscopy
  • high resolution and ab initio spectroscopy
  • spectroscopy of chiral recognition and absolute configuration of carbohydrates
  • helium nanodroplet spectroscopy
  • condensed phase linear and non-linear spectroscopy
