Diffusion of trapped holes on nanocrystal surfaces

July 11, 2016

In an article in Nature Chemistry , James et al show that trapped holes can move on nanocrystal surfaces. This work combines ultrafast spectroscopy and theory in collaboration with Joel Eaves .Read more »
Amanda's newest Science Buffs blog post

May 10, 2016

In honor of the NSF's 66th birthday, Amanda's newest blog post for Science Buffs celebrates how basic science is hiding in plain sight - we just need a little history lesson to see it. Her first ‪#‎ThanksScience‬ post covers the discovery of the world's first "electronic eye," which, among other... Read more »

Ten-hundred word challenge by Amanda

Jan. 29, 2016

In the recent Science Buffs article on the "ten-hundred word challenge" and the "up-goer-five" text editor , Amanda explained our group's research in excessively simple terms. Limited to the 1000 most commonly used words, she described nanocrystals as "tiny rocks" and couldn't even use the word "energy." Read the article here !Read more »
