Condensed matter/materials physics optical and laser spectroscopy:

This laboratory is currently under development and is designed to apply state-of-the-art optical and laser spectroscopy techniques to study the fundamental properties of advanced materials. Some of the most advanced optical and laser spectroscopy techniques would be available, including multidimensional ultrafast laser spectroscopy possibly spanning a wide spectral range, and single nanostructure photoluminescence and lifetime spectroscopy. The aforementioned optical techniques would be combined to explore the electronic, vibrational, and light-matter interactions in a variety of advanced nanomaterials, correlated electron materials, and organic/inorganic hybrid materials, used in renewable energy applications for harvesting and storage. Understanding their intrinsic properties would contribute in improving the device performance of solar cells and batteries, important to a renewable energy future.
