We are an interdisciplinary group focused on nanoscience for solar energy harvesting. We are interested in synthesis of novel nanoscale materials and in the behavior of photoexcited states in such systems.
A postdoctoral position is available in femtosecond spectroscopy of nanomaterials.
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 »
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 »
Semiconductor nanocrystals drive nitrogenase to photochemically convert nitrogen to ammonia. Our work with collaborators from NREL, Utah State University, and Montana State University appears in Science . See also the story on CU website and coverage in C&E News .Read more »
