Research Summary

The ultrafast chemical physics group led by Klaas Wynne uses spectroscopy and imaging to study liquids, solutions, and proteins, and phase transitions in them. Femtosecond optical Kerr-effect spectroscopy (OKE) is used to get access to dynamics from the terahertz (1012 Hz) range down to megahertz. Dielectric spectroscopy – done with colleagues in Germany and Italy – provides a complementary view. Imaging and in particular confocal fluorescence spectroscopy and fluorescence lifetime imaging (FLIM) is used to observe spatial fluctuations related to the dynamic separation of phases. With collaborators (in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK, and the US), we can also look at bonds directly using femtosecond two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy (2D-IR), at diffusion using NMR, at atomic-scale structure using X-ray and neutron scattering, and at interfaces using sum-frequency generation (surface SFG).
