Ultrafast and Nonlinear Optical Studies of Reduced Dimensional and Quantum Confined Systems
Home Research Publications Members Prof. McGuire Laboratory Links Internal

We are interested in reduced dimensional and nanoscale systems, particularly the effects of confinement on exciton-exciton and spin-carrier interactions and electronic and vibrational dynamics in systems ranging from water surfaces to nanocrystals and graphene quantum dots. We address these problems through an array of ultrafast nonlinear optical techniques that are sensitive to transient processes and symmetries characterizing interactions that are otherwise difficult to probe.
