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.
Congrats to Dr. Katie Shulenberger for being awarded a 2021-2022 Cottrell fellowship! The fellowship supports postdocs looking to move into academic positions in the COVID-19 pandemic era. As part of her fellowship responsibilities Katie will be co-teaching CHEM 1400 (Foundations of Chemistry) this semester with Dr. Dukovic.
Group members Katie and Helena, along with their international collaborators, authored an article in ACS Nano about their work establishing the News in Nanocrystals (NiNC) webinar series. Focused on nanocrystal research, NiNC is a bi-weekly webinar that was established during the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to virtually draw together...
Madi Sousa, an undergraduate student at the University of Denver, will be joining the lab for the rest of the summer. She will be co-mentored by Lauren and Katie as part of the STROBE Summer Undergraduate Research Scholars program. Welcome Madi!
In a new perspective in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, James Utterback et al describe our work on trapped-hole diffusion at nanocrystal surfaces, done in collaboration with the Eaves group at the University of Colorado Boulder.
In a new publication in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters Orion Pearce et al, led by Niels Damrauer , use NMR spectroscopic techniques to probe how a ruthenium-based water oxidation catalyst binds to CdS QDs. The findings point toward a surprising binding orientation that has implications for hole transfer...
