Research interests

We are looking for somebody to join us as a PhD student to work on imaging and laser manipulation of nucleation phenomena. A great project on the border between physics,chemistry, and engineering. The position is available to UK and EU residents only and will be starting October 2017For more information on this PhD position.

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).
